  1. Incorporating small-scale farmers into sustainable supply chains: the Manobi case

    Borrella Alonso de la Torre, María Inmaculada; Carrasco Gallego, Ruth; Mataix Aldeanueva, Carlos; Fisac Garcia, Ramón
    Increased globalization and outsourcing to developing countries is fostering the interest in supply chain sustainability. From the academic point of view, while environmental impacts of supply chains have been largely analysed, the research on social issues has been scattered and fragmented. This paper thereby sets out to close this gap. We have identified an emerging sphere of knowledge at the interface between sustainable supply chain management, business strategy and international development literature, which seeks to propose innovative strategies for poverty alleviation. The incorporation of impoverished farmers into supply chains is presented here as one of those strategies, and illustrated through...

  2. Social issues in sustainable supply chain networks: state of the art and further research directions

    Borrella Alonso de la Torre, María Inmaculada; Carrasco Gallego, Ruth; Moreno, J.; Mataix Aldeanueva, Carlos
    The study of supply networks sustainability is a field with a long path behind. Nonetheless, most studies to date are focused on the environmental sub dimension of sustainability, while the social perspective in supply chain networks research still shows a potential for pioneering contri butions. Moreover, from the development standpoint we have observed a paradigm shift advancing from a narrow concept of development, centered on purely economic dimensions, towards more refined issues such as inclusive business, shared value or poverty footprint, all of which are highly related to supply chain activities. In this paper we present a review of the current state of the...

  3. New Methodology for Integrating Teams into Multidisciplinary Project Based Learning

    Marquez Sevillano, Juan de Juanes; Martínez Muneta, María Luisa; Romero Rey, Gregorio; Pérez García, Jesus Maria
    This paper describes the collaboration among students and professors in four different subjects, to develop multidisciplinary projects. The objective is to simulate the conditions in a company environment. A new methodology based on student interaction and content development in a Wiki environment has been developed. The collaborative server created an ‘out of the classroom’ discussion forum for students of different subjects, and allowed them to compile a ‘project work’ portfolio. Students and professors participated with enthusiasm, due to the correct well-distributed work and the easiness of use of the selected platform in which only an internet connected computer is needed...

  4. Formas de inserción de los yacimientos arqueológicos en áreas fuertemente antropizadas de la Costa del Sol: Una aproximación metodológica previa al aprovechamiento territorial de la ruina.

    Fernández-Rico, Javier M.
    Partiendo de la premisa de que la disciplina arqueológica, por su propia definición, no procura el necesario aprovechamiento o reciclaje de los restos arqueológicos dentro del territorio que los contiene, hecho que podría materializarse en la creación de enclaves generadores de identidad, riqueza y cultura, se propone una metodología inductiva de análisis previa al reciclaje territorial de la ruina, basada en la figura de la forma de inserción, que estudia, a través de varios parámetros, las relaciones entre el estrato arqueológico aflorado y el territorio contemporáneo contenedor. A través del estudio de 40 yacimientos arqueológicos localizados en la Costa del...

  5. Evaluation and use of the standards in of the technical drawings in the Final Year Project

    Martínez Muneta, María Luisa; Carretero Díaz, Antonio María; Romero Rey, Gregorio; Mera Sánchez De Pedro, José Manuel
    In the Industrial Engineering and Chemical Engineering courses of Madrid Polytechnic University the core subjects of Technical Design are taught on the first course but under different names in the first and second four month periods of this degree. The Final Year Project (FYP) is usually the first work in which engineers do a complete engineering project that includes different parts, such as a memory, measuring, budgets and technical drawings. This work sets out to learn and assess the use students make of the knowledge acquired in Technical Drawing subjects when preparing their FYP technical drawings. By analyzing different aspects of...

  6. A new approach for integrating teams in multidisciplinary project based learning

    Romero Rey, Gregorio; Martínez Muneta, María Luisa; Marquez Sevillano, Juan de Juanes; Pérez, Jesus M.
    This paper describes the experience of collaboration among students and teachers in order to develop multidisciplinary projects, and to reproduce as closely as possible, the team's integration into a company environment. A new methodology based on student interaction and content development in a Wiki environment has been developed. Students and Teachers have participated with enthusiasm, due to the correct well-distributed work and the easiness of use of the selected platform in which only an internet connected computer is needed to create and to discuss the multidisciplinary projects. The quality of the developed projects has been dramatically improved due to the...
