Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Management
  • Statistics
  • Marketing

Denis Royston Towill mainly investigates Supply chain, Supply chain management, Service management, Bullwhip and Operations research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agile software development, Risk analysis, Industrial organization and Operations management. His work deals with themes such as Business process reengineering, Business process, Microeconomics and Systems engineering, which intersect with Supply chain management.

His study in the field of Supply chain risk management and Demand chain is also linked to topics like Material flow. The Bullwhip study combines topics in areas such as Production, Mathematical optimization, Vendor-managed inventory and Inventory control. His work carried out in the field of Operations research brings together such families of science as Decision support system and System dynamics.

His most cited work include:

  • An Integrated Model for the Design of Agile Supply Chains. (769 citations)
  • Supply chain migration from lean and functional to agile and customised (671 citations)
  • Measuring and avoiding the bullwhip effect: A control theoretic approach (562 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Supply chain, Operations management, Supply chain management, Service management and Process management. The Supply chain risk management, Bullwhip effect and Bullwhip research Denis Royston Towill does as part of his general Supply chain study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Material flow, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. Simulation is closely connected to Production in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Operations management.

While the research belongs to areas of Supply chain management, Denis Royston Towill spends his time largely on the problem of Agile software development, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Lean project management and Lean manufacturing. His Service management research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Value chain and Systems engineering. He focuses mostly in the field of Process management, narrowing it down to topics relating to Process and, in certain cases, Industrial engineering.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Supply chain (57.72%)
  • Operations management (31.25%)
  • Supply chain management (27.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Supply chain (57.72%)
  • Supply chain management (27.57%)
  • Operations management (31.25%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Supply chain, Supply chain management, Operations management, Process management and Best practice. His specific area of interest is Supply chain, where Denis Royston Towill studies Service management. He has researched Supply chain management in several fields, including Sample, Materials management and Product.

His studies in Operations management integrate themes in fields like General partnership and Health care. His Process management research incorporates themes from Benchmarking, Business model and Business process. His studies deal with areas such as Order and Manufacturing as well as Best practice.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Arcs of supply chain integration (72 citations)
  • Enabling supply chain segmentation through demand profiling (61 citations)
  • Principles for the design and operation of engineer-to-order supply chains in the construction sector (43 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Management
  • Statistics
  • Marketing

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Supply chain, Supply chain management, Service management, Operations management and Industrial engineering. Denis Royston Towill studies Supply chain, namely Bullwhip. Denis Royston Towill has researched Bullwhip in several fields, including Feed forward, Mathematical optimization and Operations research.

His study explores the link between Operations research and topics such as Production that cross with problems in Risk analysis. His Supply chain management course of study focuses on Sample and Service Integration Maturity Model and Benchmarking. His Industrial engineering research includes elements of Management, Best practice, Manufacturing engineering and Theme.
