Description
Production of services and goods typically involves many process steps that are spread across multiple firms or departments. In supply chain management (SCM) we examine how to improve performance by considering the actions of multiple members within this chain of activities. SCM addresses not only the flow of materials from upstream to downstream members in the supply chain, but also the flow of information and funds. Advancements in information technology allow the supply chain to achieve performance improvements previously beyond reach, and may change the optimal structure of the supply chain. Class discussion is motivated by case studies that examine successful emerging supply chain strategies.
