Professor Guide is the Smeal Chaired Professor of Operations & Supply Chain Management. He joined the faculty at the Smeal College of Business in the fall of 2002. He was a visiting research fellow at INSEAD (2001-2003). His research has appeared in numerous academic and managerial journals, including Management Science, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, Production and Operations Management and Harvard Business Review. Professor Guide has been a guest editor for feature issues of California Management Review (46(2)), Interfaces (33(6)) and Production and Operations Management (15(3&4)) devoted to closed-loop supply chains. His research has been supported by grants from the Carnegie Bosch Institute and the NationalScience Foundation. He also regularly works with global organizations (including the US Navy, Hewlett-Packard, Robert BoschTools, Cisco and Pitney Bowes, Inc.) on a variety of closed-loop supply chain problems. He recently ended a 6 year term as co-EIC of the Journal of Operations Management.

Expertise

Professor Guide's research is focused on the development and control of closed-loop supply chains, time-based models for commercial product returns, remanufacturing, sustainable operations and producer responsibility legislation.

Courses Taught

SCM 497 – Special Topics (3)
Formal courses given infrequently to explore, in depth, a comparatively narrow subject that may be topical or of special interest.

SCIS 520 – Prin Sc&Is I (3)
Initial course on principles of supply chain and information systems with special emphasis on potential research topics. SC&IS 520 Principles of SC&IS I (3) This is the first of two courses covering principles, research problems and issues in supply chain and information systems. The course familiarizes students with a wide range of appropriate research topics and prepares them to initiate doctoral level research in these areas. Topics include: logistics network design, transportation and distribution, management production and inventory management, supply chain integration and coordination, workflow systems, and process and data modeling of information systems.Evaluation methods include homework assignments, research paper(s), presentations, and class participation and discussion.Offered in the fall semester only. SC&IS 510 is a prerequisite.

SCIS 596 – Individual Studies (1)
Creative projects, including nonthesis research, that are supervised on an individual basis and which fall outside the scope of formal courses. A specific title may be used in each instance and will be entered on the student's transcript.

SC&IS 597 – Special Topics (Variable)
Formal courses given on a topical or special interest subject which may be offered infrequently; several different topics may be taught in one year or semester.

SCM 596 – Individual Studies (Variable)
Creative projects, including nonthesis research, that are supervised on an individual basis and which fall outside the scope of formal courses.

SC&IS 520 – Principles of SC&IS I (3)
Initial course on principles of supply chain and information systems with special emphasis on potential research topics.

SC&IS 530 – Principles of SC&IS II (3)
Sequel on principles of supply chain and information systems with special emphasis on potential research topics.

SCM 405 – Manufacturing and Services Strategies (3)
Investigates operations strategy and its relationship to other functions in the supply chain and presents quantitative tools for decision-making.

QMM 561 – Manufacturing Systems Planning and Control I (3)
Systems, components and configurations, flow of material and information in a manufacturing system.

SC&IS 597D – Data Mining for Business Applications (3)
This course will explore recent research and developments in sustainability from a business perspective. Various elements that are needed to develop a sustainable organization will be explored, including closed-loop supply chains, environmental regulation

QMM 582 – Manufacturing and Supply Chain Strategy (3)
Strategic decision context of manufacturing and its supply chains with linkage to corporate and business strategy.

SC&IS 510 – Introduction to Supply Chain and Information Systems (3)
Introduction to the strategic framework, issues, and methods for integrating supply and demand management within and across companies.

SC&IS 596 – Individual Studies (variable)
Creative projects, including nonthesis research, that are supervised on an individual basis and which fall outside the scope of formal courses. A specific title may be used in each instance and will be entered on the student's transcript.

SC&IS 597C – Ph.D. Seminar in Closed-Loop Supply Chains (3)
This seminar will examine the current state-of-the-art research (tactical and strategic) and practice in closed-loop and reverse supply chains. The research will also show how closed-llop supply chains are part of a larger research agenda on sustainabilit

SC&IS 597A – Operations Research in Supply Chains (3)
Formal courses given on a topical or special interest subject which may be offered infrequently; several different topics may be taught in one year or semester.

SC&IS 405 – Manufacturing and Services Strategies (3)
Investigates operations strategy and its relationship to other functions in the supply chain and presents quantitative tools for decision-making.

SCM 556 – Manufacturing Strategy (2)
Development of service-sensitive manufacturing strategies to support synchronized supply chains.
