This course will benefit not only those who expect to assume operating roles, but also those who wish to work on strategy, finance, accounting and sales/marketing, and who ultimately expect to build companies. That's because every business, regardless of size or industry, requires supply and demand chains to function. Effective supply chain management (SCM) integrates the management of goods/services, information, and financial data, from raw materials through to the consumer. The top level objective is to satisfy or exceed customers' demands and expectations, yet do so profitably. This course is designed to provide students with an integrated perspective of SCM and to develop the capability to analyze existing supply chain operations with intent to develop plans for improvement. Such improvements will be designed with the end goal of enhancing the company's competitiveness through more effective operational execution. Students will learn to recognize best practices in supply chain management, identify possible barriers to high-performing supply chains, and assess the effectiveness of advanced technologies to potentially improve supply chain execution. There is one prerequisite for this course - completion of an Introductory Operations course.
