A team from SPX Poland was recently named champion of the 6th annual Global Challenge of The Fresh Connection, an international supply chain management competition sponsored by MPM Productivity Management.
After competing against 300 teams, from 25 countries around the world, a team of employees from SPX’s facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland qualified to become one of 11 teams to participate in the final round of the competition in Dubai. On September 19, the team outperformed the competition and secured the title of Global Challenge Champion 2014.
This year’s three-round competition presented teams with a situation in which their company, a fictitious fruit-juice manufacturer, The Fresh Connection, was experiencing poor financial results and diminished efficiency. The competition called for Team SPX to collaborate to address various supply chain issues and help improve the company’s fiscal performance. Teams were evaluated according to the return on investment generated as a result of the decisions they made and actions they took throughout the game.
As the champions of the 2014 Global Challenge, the SPX Poland team will attend a one-week executive supply chain course, offered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, Massachusetts.
