Business and World Challenges

Value Chain Approach
Value chains represent all the steps and links in a system from beginning to end. When every step and link performs at its best, the entire value chain performs at its best. Businesses and nonprofits benefit from enhanced value chain management.
The research strategy focuses on four research application areas applicable to both business and the nonprofit sector: Water Quality and Water Delivery, Food Safety and Sustainability, Global Manufacturing and Value Chain Integration.
