MGMT29008 - Supply Chain and e-Logistics

General Information

Unit Synopsis

The unit prepares you to apply business strategies, analytical methodologies and information technology in supply chain management and e-logistics. Traditionally industries have focused on operation evaluation and performance improvement of mainly the manufacturing process; however, the deficiencies of supply chain coordination result in severe downgrades of business competitiveness. With the advent of information technology, computers not only improve manufacturing operation and management but also strategic decision-making as well. This unit will equip you with an understanding of the systems approach to the planning, analysis, design, development, and evaluation of supply chain and e-logistics management. On completion of this unit, you will have acquired: (a) an understanding of the impact of supply chain management and related issues on the success and profitability of the modern organisation; (b) the major challenges faced in implementing an integrated supply chain management strategy, as well as approaches for meeting these challenges; (c) the information technology, business models, and analytical problem-solving skills to develop solutions for a variety of logistics and supply chain problems; and (d) through real organisational case studies, an understanding of the effective application and the development of logistics and supply chain technology in Indonesian industries.
