Supply Chain Management (SCM) deals with the efficient and effective flow of goods, services, information and financial resources through a network of suppliers, transformation facilities, distribution sites and customers. The goal of this course is to understand how supply chain decisions impact the performance of the firm as well as the entire supply chain. This course covers the major issues in supply chain management, including: definition of a supply chain; role of inventory; bullwhip effect and information sharing; vendor-managed inventories and other distribution strategies; third-party logistics; managing product variety; information technology and supply chain management; international issues. SCM focuses on managing material and information outside of the factory walls including aspects of sourcing, product design collaboration, demand planning and forecasting, inventory deployment, distribution system design, channel management, procurement, and logistics. We explore order fulfillment strategies and the impact of the Internet on distribution and back-end supply chain processes. We also examine strategies for enterprise integration.
