Dr. Prasanta Kumar Dey is a professor of Operations Management at Aston Business School. He won Vice Chancellor award for research excellence in 2012. Prior to joining Aston University in 2004, he worked for five years in the University of the West Indies in Barbados as a Director of graduate project management program and 13 years in Indian Oil Corporation Limited, India as a project executive. He specializes in supply chain management and project management. He has published more than hundred research papers in leading international refereed journals. He has accomplished several research projects in supply chain optimisation and project management maturity studies in manufacturing, services and construction globally covering both small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and large sectors. 

His projects have been funded by Ford Foundation, Research Council UK, British Council, West Midlands Manufacturing Advisory Services, EU and ERDF. His industry clients include Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls Royce, JCB, L’Oreal, NHS, Britons Carpet, Cemex, General Dynamics, Unocal, and several organisations in SMEs in the UK and abroad. He has delivered long term executive development programs and facilitated numerous workshops for executives in Barbados Government, the healthcare professionals in Maltese hospital and National Health Services in the UK, the project executives in JCB, Jaguar and Land Rover, Atkins and the Country and HR managers in L’Oreal. 

Dr. Dey has developed several decision support systems that include supplier performance evaluation, supply chain performance measurement, sustainability performance framework, risk management and currently engaged in developing decision support systems for optimizing bioenergy (including waste to energy) supply chain design and operations. His work helped numerous SMEs in the developing countries like India, Bangladesh and Thailand to deal with their sustainability issues and challenge. He helps many city councils in the UK and municipalities in India for developing strategies and policies for solid waste management. He is the editor in chief of International Journal of Energy Sector Management.

Through our research on supply chain performance measurement and management we are advising   organizations in manufacturing industry in Thailand improvement measures for enhancing supply chain performance


Through Central Bank of Bangladesh we are suggesting environmental management policies for Bangladeshi organizations to combat threats of climate change  



We have developed project management maturity analysis model to measure project management maturity of the West Midlands based organizations (Jaguar Land Rover, Service Birmingham, Brintons Carpet, Mtech, Mouchel, GKN) and suggested improvement measures after analyzing their project management maturity. We have advised many companies for implementing best practices. We are currently studying the impact within the organizations after implementing the suggest measures.
