MBAD 662 - SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
In this course we will view the supply chain from the point of view of a general manager. Logistics and supply chain management is all about managing the hand-offs in a supply chain -- hand-offs of either information or product. The design of a logistics system is critically linked to the objectives of the supply chain. Our goal in this course is to understand how logistical decisions impact the performance of the firm as well as the entire supply chain. The key will be to understand the link between supply chain structures and logistical capabilities in a firm or the entire supply chain. The function of supply chain management is to design and manage the processes, assets, and flows of material and information required to satisfy customers' demands. Supply logistics related costs account for 20-25% of a typical firm's total cost. On the revenue side the supply chain decisions have a direct impact on the market penetration and customer service. Globalization of economy and electronic commerce has heightened the stragegic importance of supply chain management and created new opportunities for using supply chain strategy and planning as a competitive tool. Electronic commerce has not only created new distribution channels for consumers but also revolutionized the industrial marketplace by facilitating inter-firm communication and by creating efficient markets through trading communities. Moreover combination of enterprise information infrastructure and the Internet has paved the way for a variety of supply chain optimization technologies.
