In this special edition we take a look at the adoption of redistributive manufacturing(RDM) as a means of making health care supply chains more resilient. Tony Hines speaks with Professor Wendy Phillips who is professor of innovation at Bristol Business School, University of West England and a leading researcher in this field.
RDM has potential to engage local communities to become co-producers in providing products and services at the point of consumption and to customize them to meet the specific need of service users. Professor Phillips talks about her research giving many examples of the benefits that such a supply chain reconfiguration can bring and also discusses the wider potential application of RDM across different sectors.
