Professor: Omar Hernandez
Course ID: 9294
This course addresses concepts and techniques related to the strategic design, management and improvement of supply chains and logistic systems. The course bases its relevance on current competitive landscapes, where product life cycles are shrinking and customer expectations increase and competition is more intense. Very few organizations exist in isolation but instead rely on a network or supply chain to deliver products and services to their customers. In this context, effective logistics and supply chain management represent a great challenge as well as a tremendous opportunity for most companies. Supply chain management is an extension of traditional operations management to include multiple stages of suppliers and customers.
This course provides insights into the decisions that organizations are concerned with when configuring their supply chains. The course content will consist of roughly four parts: (a) Supply chain design, including the role of operations in the firm, delivery of a quality product or service at the right time, in the right place, at a cost that allows the right price; (b) The basics of logistics, including moving goods to from suppliers and to customers and contrasting modes in logistics; (c) Special topics, such as sustainable supply chains, human rights, advanced IT systems, security of the logistics system and the operation and logistics of NGO programs such as famine relief. The course will address the strategic issues and the analytic tools for decision making. Multiple examples and business cases are presented with a practical focus.
