When a supply network has been mapped, future scenarios can be developed and modelled and ‘what if’ questions posed. This enables multiple results to be reviewed by supply chain planners and management prior to the making of a strategic or tactical decision. Currently, the main tool used is a spreadsheet, but this is unlikely to be integrated with operational constraints, resulting in a lack of supply network optimisation. This unit will provide you with software tools, techniques and applications more attuned to the needs of modelling complex supply networks. This unit requires you to use your supply network maps developed in the unit Supply Network Mapping. You will then develop future scenarios for the network and analyse the outcomes in terms of products, materials and capacities within a business, linked to possible supply and distribution plans and risks. This provides a framework and collaborative environment for operational and tactical decision making based on quantitative models rather than opinion.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
