CAPS Research is the premier nonprofit research organization dedicated to supply and supply chain issues. Since 1986, CAPS Research has been providing thorough, practical research for our strategic-minded corporate sponsors and for the public.

Our research products and events are aimed at executives with strategic responsibilities for the supply/sourcing/procurement effort. In our global Roundtables, Best Practices Workshops, and Critical Issues Partnership Events, they engage in best-practices sharing; in our benchmarking, focus studies, and Practix reports, they see how they can measure their efforts; in Knowledge Central, they utilize the knowledge database and the tools to assess their own best practices and strategies.

Knowledge creation and dissemination in supply chain management is critical for issues related to global environmental sustainability, and CAPS Research is at the forefront of such issues.
