Course Overview
Logistics management is the process of strategically managing the flow (from the supplier, through the organization, and out to the customer) of goods, services, finance and knowledge. Supply chain management continues this process, along with relationships within and among organizations, to realize greater economic value.
The goal of this course is to help participants appreciate the big picture of logistics and supply chain management and recognize that through its evolution SCM has driven significant value and competitive advantage to those organizations that expend efforts in their SCM activities.

The course content will be delivered in three phases:
Phase 1: Overview of Logistics / Supply Chain Management
The first two weeks will focus on setting the context for the rest of the course. Students will identify the interdependencies between procurement, operations and transportation. Special attention is given to encouraging the need for a holistic viewpoint when it comes to SCM.
Phase 2: Introduction of the Functions (Procurement, Operations, Transportation)
The following seven weeks will focus on covering the key aspects of the procurement, operations and transportation functions. Students will be able to describe how these activities are interrelated to one another and to the broader context of SCM.

Phase 3: Integration
The final phase of the course will focus on covering how the cross-functional activities and processes are executed in a practical environment. Topics will include technology (e.g., ERP, DRP, MRP) as well as the areas of CRM and SRM.  This phase concludes by revisiting some of the activities that were presented earlier in the course.

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:
  • Define a supply chain
  • Describe the importance of supply management in SCM
  • Describe the importance of forecasting in SCM
  • Describe the importance of inventory management in SCM
  • Describe the SCM planning process
  • Describe the role of transportation and warehousing in SCM
  • Describe how technology can support integrated supply chain processes
  • Assess the potential impact of supply chain initiatives or shortcomings
