Dr.Benny Tjahjono, Ph.D., M.Sc., B.Eng.
Current Role: Senior Lecturer in Supply Chain Operations Logistics, Procurement and Supply Chain Management at Cranfield University, United Kingdom
- Dr Tjahjono holds a first degree in Electrical Engineering, an MSc and a PhD both in Manufacturing Systems Engineering. He won a scholarship scheme sponsored by the British Government's Foreign and Commonwealth Office/ BUNZL/ Cranfield University, for undertaking the Manufacturing MSc course at Cranfield University, and was also awarded the best student upon completion of that course. He subsequently received a scholarship from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office with the support of the Department of Trade and Industry, British Universities and the industry sectors, to pursue his PhD in Manufacturing Systems Engineering, also at Cranfield University.
- His overarching research focus embraces the area of Operations and Supply Chain Management, which incorporates production and service systems. He has a particular interest in the contemporary applications of Simulation Modelling (Discrete-event Simulation, System Dynamics and Agent-based Simulation) to many emerging research areas related to manufacturing systems, such as "servitization" of manufacturing, Product-Service Systems and sustainable manufacturing. His background in electronics enables him to devise an innovative method to integrate asset condition-based monitoring to support the operational planning/execution of the Through-life Engineering Service contracts using the symbiotic simulation techniques.
