Description:

Competency Area: Management & Decision Making
Required of and restricted to second year O&M MBA students.

This course provides an enhanced understanding of key concepts in supply chain management. The systems approach and a process orientation are explored at the individual-firm level and from the perspective of collaborative relationships among participants in logistics supply chains. Case studies are used to explore the impact the supply chain perspective and operations management has on businesses today. The course provides opportunities to investigate individual supply chain topics such as approaches to planning and managing inventory across supply chains, value creation through alignment and realignment of supply chain capabilities, the distinction of supply and value chain in sustainable businesses, and supply chain performance metrics. The course will introduce students to a variety of operations management techniques as they relate to "green" business practices.
