    The Role of organizational competences in the evolution of business models
    (Heidelberg Berlin Springer, 2010-10-01) Moreira, Matheus; Beauregard L., Robert; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.
    This paper presents the use of a conceptual framework designed for the management of organizational competences to contribute to the evolution of the business model of an enterprise. The framework, developed based on a detailed review of the history of the car manufacturer Toyota, was used for a Delphi study and an action-research applied in the furniture industry. The results suggest that it is applicable for ex-post analysis of organizational changes, as well as a strategy planning tool.

    Exploring new forms of intermediation in the forest value chain
    (Pulp and Paper Technical Association of Canada, 2018) D'Amours, Sophie; LeBel, Luc; Azouzi, Riadh.
    This paper proposes a method to restructure the forest value chain using intermediaries when a wider range of forest values should be managed for several stakeholders. This method leads to the definition of the strategic vision of the intermediary, including its value proposition and its required competencies, assuming that actors in the value chain are prepared to revise their business approach to enable effective collaboration and knowledge sharing. The method is used to support management of public forests in the Province of Quebec, in Eastern Canada. Basically, the intermediary, referred to as the integrator-supplier (IS) in the application case, enables several stakeholders, including the government, the forest industry, regional authorities, recreation organizations, and First Nations, to cnmmunicate, to set compatible goals, and to synchronize their activities. These activities and interactions must all be effectively carried out to maximize the overall benefits of forest management. Three critical issues for successful development of the IS are identified. The results present functional descriptions of seven development scenarios for effective use of intermediation in forest value chains.

    The online wood supply game
    (INFORMS, 2017-07-24) Marier, Philippe; Rönnqvist, Mikael; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.; Fjeld, Dag
    This paper describes the Wood Supply Game (WSG), a prize-winning e-learning tool that is freely available for players all over the world. The game effectively helps students and managers realize the challenges in managing demand and supply in wood supply chains, and gain insight into the types of measures required to make these divergent chains effective. The WSG is an adaptation of the Beer game, a popular didactic tool used to empirically demonstrate demand amplification in a simple and generic context. The supply chain modeled by the Beer game does not involve co-products, and thus is very different from the wood supply chain, which is divergent by nature. The WSG presented in this paper models a supply network with one point of divergence and demand for two products. This preserves the simplicity of the game but enables it to offer a base for supply network simulation in a large number of industrial sectors with divergent processes. We describe an online version of the WSG, discuss our experiences playing it with students and managers, and provide hints to the instructor.

    An agility reference model for the manufacturing enterprise : the example of the furniture industry
    (World Scientific Pub Co., 2009-12-01) Beauregard L., Robert; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.
    its drivers and capabilities, and even suggesting methodologies to develop agility. However, most of these efforts remain vague with respect to the characteristics and the expected contributions of the technologies involved or required. This paper proposes an agility reference model; a unifying conceptual representation of agility in terms of the necessary capabilities needed by every process involved in the enterprise seeking for agility. Agility is described using three capabilities which are believed to be the sources of competitive advantages; flexibility, responsiveness, and autonomy. It is shown that each capability addresses some specific issues and can only be thoroughly developed if the technologies used are characterized with some specific attributes or properties. The idea behind the proposed agility reference model was to derive a typology framework that emphasizes the taxonomy of the market interaction strategies for furniture products, and the competitive priorities that should be targeted by furniture enterprises aiming to be agile. Accordingly, the issues related to the different agility capabilities were discussed in the context of the furniture enterprise of the future. Then, the suitability of the proposed model for the derivation of the typology was explored based on case studies on two furniture manufacturing enterprises. The case studies analyze the context in terms of competitive priorities and customization strategies and investigate the agility properties of the technologies in use.

    Biomass and carbon dynamics in forest management at a strategic scale
    (Faculté des sciences de l’administration, Université Laval, 2016-04-01) Carle, Marc-André; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.
    This study explored these two questions: (1) How much carbon can be stored in the forest? and (2) Which forest management regimes best achieve the dual objectives of high sustained timber yield and high carbon sequestration? A model that can be used to predict carbon sequestration potential within a forest region assuming a given management strategy was developed. First, a carbon sequestration unit that accounts for both the amount of carbon stocked and the time during which it is stocked was introduced. This unit was used to integrate the carbon dimension in a Model-III formulation for forest management adapted from the description of models used by the Chief Forester who is responsible of determining the annual allowable cut in the different forest management units in Québec. The CBM-CFS3 model was used to simulate carbon dynamics of above- and belowground biomass and dead organic matter, including soils. Different management scenarios were developed using the data of an actual forest management unit in Quebec. Managing this forest for carbon maximization instead of letting grow naturally with no harvest or other treatment, would increase the carbon stocks by 1.89%, and only 25% of the carbon stock is estimated to occur in the aboveground live pool. Six scenarios aimed at achieving the dual objectives of high sustained timber yield and high carbon storage were also computed and compared.

    Integrated optimization of strategic and tactical planning decisions in forestry
    (Elsevier, 2016-11-12) Bouchard, Mathieu; Rönnqvist, Mikael; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.; Gunn, Eldon A.
    The traditional approach to plan the forest products value chain using a combination of sequential and hierarchical planning phases leads to suboptimal solutions. We present an integrated planning model to support forest planning on the long term with anticipation of the impacts on the economic and logistic activities in the forest value chain on a shorter term, and we propose a novel optimization approach that includes acceleration strategies to efficiently solve large-scale practical instances of this integrated planning problem. Our model extends and binds the models implemented in two solver engines that have developed in previous work. The first system, called Logilab, allows for defining and solving value chain optimization problems. The second system, called Silvilab, allows for generating and solving strategic problems. We revisit the tactical model in Logilab and we extend the strategic model in Silvilab so that the integrated planning problem can be solved using column generation decomposition with the subproblems formulated as hypergraphs and solved using a dynamic programing algorithm. Also, a new set of spatial sustainability constraints is considered in this model. Based on numerical experiments on large-scale industrial cases, the integrated approach resulted in up to 13% profit increase in comparison with the non-integrated approach. In addition, the proposed approach compares advantageously with a standard LP column generation approach to the integrated forest planning problem, both in CPU time (with an average 2.4 factor speed-up) and in memory requirement (with an average reduction by a factor of 20).

    An agility reference model for the furniture enterprise of the future
    (World Scientific, 2007-06-05) Beauregard L., Robert; D'Amours, Sophie; Azouzi, Riadh.
    There is an extensive amount of research literature about the concept of agility, describing its drivers and capabilities, and even suggesting methodologies to develop agility. However, most of these efforts remain vague with respect to the characteristics and the expected contributions of the technologies involved or required.
