2017-2018 Graduate Catalog

INSC 60011 Supply Chain Management Fundamentals

The course is designed to bridge the gap between an undergraduate knowledge of operations and/or supply chain management and a graduate level course. As such, there is less emphasis on memorization of terminology and much greater emphasis on critical thinking, analytics, and decision-making. The course demonstrates how various processes and partnerships within a company's supply chain can be integrated to deliver value to customers. Students who do well in this course will learn to speak the language of supply chain management and they will understand fundamental supply chain strategies and tactics that can be used to gain competitive advantage.
