About

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Doctoral program in “Industrial Engineering and Management” at Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto, and also a researcher at INESC TEC, at the Centre for Enterprise Systems Engineering (CESE), in the E4Value project in a research group on Supply Chain Management in the Aeronautic sector.

My supervisors are Ana Cristina Barros and António Lucas Soares

I took my M.Sc. degree in Management Engineering at the University of Palermo and collaborate with the University of Liverpool Management School for my Master thesis. My research interests are related to Information Management, Supply Chain Management, and Risk Management, especially for the Aeronautic sector. I am also member of the European Operation Management Association (EurOMA) and of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management (DEGI club) at FEUP.

Risk and visibility in supply chains: An information management perspective

Authors

Global Business Expansion: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Appl.

Abstract
The emergence of complex supply chains is one of the most important consequences of globalization. The management of these supply chains requires increased efforts by organizations that, on one hand, are increasingly pressured by customers in terms of service levels, on the other hand, must manage their suppliers from various locations and with different local requirements. In this context, an appropriate management of information flows is needed to create the adequate visibility level for managing supply chain risk. This chapter presents an overview on the concepts of risk management, visibility and information management in supply chains. This study proposes a conceptual framework for the selection of risk mitigation strategies in the supply chain and characterizes the external and internal information flows decision makers need to implement two categories of risk mitigation strategies: redundancy and flexibility. © 2018, IGI Global.

An Information Management Perspective of Supplier Selection Process in Manufacturing Networks

Authors
Messina, D; Barros, AC; Soares, AL;

Publication
COLLABORATION IN A HYPERCONNECTED WORLD

Abstract
The past decades have been characterized by an increasing interest of companies in international trade and significant foreign direct investments, which led to a shift from localized manufacturing companies to global manufacturing networks. The main goal of this research is to analyze the management of information within the process of supplier selection in the context of manufacturing networks. The adoption of field study methodology allows understanding how the supplier selection process is carried out in Multinational Companies (MNCs) in different manufacturing sectors. In particular, this paper aims at identifying the information that mother company and their subsidiary companies share during the supplier selection process, and how they access to this information.

Information management in supply networks: A framework to support risk management decisions

Authors

Publication

Abstract
This thesis aims at contributing with new research at the intersection of the research fields of information management and supply chain risk management. Information is a fundamental element for an effective risk management in supply networks. In spite of this, research on how to use internal and external information for risk management decisions in supply networks is scarce. Therefore, this thesis main goal is to characterize information models used in supply networks and the supply chain risk management process in order to propose an aggregated model of internal and external information for risk management decision support in supply networks. This work is based on the Design Science paradigm, which will be applied through several research methods: systematic literature review to analyse the current state of the art on information management in supply networks; field research to analyse the influence of different information organisation models in the process of supply chain risk management and to develop an information model based (artifact); and action research to implement the artifact for the definition of risk mitigation strategies in aeronautic supply networks.
