Supply chain and operations students from across the nation came together to compete in the third annual Raytheon Technologies Invitational Business Case Competition presented by TCU Neeley’s Center for Supply Chain Innovation.
The competition, which occurred virtually from September 29 through October 1, combined 36 graduate and undergraduate students into random teams and required them to work together on a case provided by Raytheon Technologies. The competition required students to find solutions for a supply chain and operations challenge.
The teams were comprised of students attending highly regarded universities and colleges, including Howard University, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Purdue University, Texas Christian University, University of Florida, University of Southern California, The University of Texas and The University of Texas at Dallas.
Raytheon Technologies is one of the world’s largest aerospace and defense manufacturers and collaborates with TCU Neeley to provide opportunities for students and seek their insight.
“At Raytheon Intelligence and Space (RI&S) we are incredibly pleased with the results we have gotten with the annual TCU Case Competition, and this year is no different,” said David Boelens, Associate Director for Operations and Supply Chain Professional Development at Raytheon Technologies.
“Not only are we able to extend offers for future opportunities like internships, but the insights we’re able to glean from students working on a real-world manufacturing challenge helps us to benchmark our own solutions and make adjustments accordingly,” Boelens said.
