CMI Project 4.3.12: Impact of research on global material supply chains

Ruby Nguyen at Idaho National Laboratory leads the CMI project "Impact of research on global material supply chains"

This project provides economic analyses to capture CMI’s impacts on the supply chain using various modeling and simulation techniques such as system dynamics, agent-based modeling, deterministic and stochastic optimization, real options, and game theory. In addition, high-level and basic material analyses (independent from other CMI projects) are conducted to evaluate promising feedstock sources and markets.
