Grundfos Solution Day 2017

SOLUTION DAY is a concept aimed at students enrolled in a Master’s degree programme. The focus will be on supply chain management and operations management, and the participants will get the opportunity to apply theory to a practical case. The day will kick off with presentations of Implement Consulting Group, Grundfos and the supply chain case topic before diving into solving the Grundfos case. Afterwards, you will work in prearranged groups to come up with a solution within the time given.

The concept

  • Together with other students you will explore a global marketleading company from the inside
  • You will learn essential tools and skills within a specific area of supply chain management
  • You will support Implement Consulting Group in delivering new and innovative solutions for a specific real-life problem
  • Finally, you will present your work and ideas to Grundfos and Implement Consulting Group

Theme of the day

  • At Grundfos, supply chain activities are always aligned with customer perspectives. Therefore, Grundfos always wants to manage the activities in a way that adds value to their customers. However, with their vast product portfolio, this can be a cumbersome task. Grundfos is therefore investigating how segmentation and differentiated planning can help in managing this task.
  • The theme of the day will thus cover topics such as customerdriven supply chain, segmentation and differentiated planning.

How to apply

  • Send us your updated CV and academic transcript via the registration page.
  • Apply as a team of 4 or as an individual whom we will place in teams.
  • Transportation expenses from Aalborg and Aarhus will be covered.
