Supply Chain Management and Information Technology
This course focuses on managing material and information outside of the factory walls including aspects of product design collaboration, demand planning and forecasting, inventory deployment, distribution system design, channel management, 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 and extraprise integration. Stumbling blocks for supply chain integration such as high transaction costs between partners, poor information availability, and the challenges of managing complex interfaces between functional organizations have been rapidly dissolving on the web. We study the impact of these changes on traditional supply chains and on the creation of virtual chains.
