This course allows students to understand both the components of supply chain management and its role within the function and across other functions in an enterprise. The objective of supply chain management is to create value, build a competitive infrastructure, leverage worldwide logistics, synchronize supply with demand, and measure performance globally. Logistics is part of the supply chain, which deals with storage and distribution of goods and services, in the right quantity, right condition, at the right time, and in the right place. The goal of this course is to provide a high-level overview of the supply chain function and related concepts and to provide an understanding of the activities involved. The course will introduce students to some challenges in managing global supply chains. The course will also provide an opportunity to students to explore a real-life situation related to concepts taught in the class, and do a research project.
