Language of instruction English
Serves as introduction to the discipline, and provides an overview of the pivotal elements of the supply chain management program. Provides students with strategic insights into managing supply chains and a solid basis for understanding the subsequent elements of the program.
Supply Chain Strategy helps the student in the study of organising and optimizing supply chains. Supply chains are constellations of firms that together form the link between raw materials and end consumer. Both upstream and downstream functions and supporting activities will be reviewed, and what it means to strategically "manage" the different connected organisations for overall performance of the chain. An introduction with background and overview of the different components of the chain to be managed will be followed by a state-of-the art review of contemporary strategic issues in Supply Chain Management, such as lean manufacturing, third-party logistics (3PL), customer services and fulfilment, one-stop shopping, supplier development, cost & performance etc.
