Professor Amar Ramudhin is a supply chain and logistics expert with more than 25 years of experience as an educator, researcher, consultant and IT executive. He has worked on a variety of projects from classical supply chain issues (design, operations planning, inventory management, transportation/distribution planning and execution) to trade facilitation issues such as the design of logistics gateways and hubs with integrated sea-air-land connectivity.
His interest in helping organisations to better align their processes lead to the development of a new unified business modelling notation. This allows the composite modelling of an enterprise’s business processes, resulting in a deeper understanding of the interaction between people, processes, policies and information. This can then be used to streamline, control and manage complex systems.
Amar previously served as one of the directors of Georgia Tech's Supply Chain and Logistics Institute in Atlanta. He was also research director for Georgia Tech's Trade and Logistics Innovation Center in Panama. He has also held senior positions in the software industry and served on the faculty of several Canadian universities.
