Managing Global Supply Chains | SCMT.X405
The products that consumers use every day do not reach their local stores by accident. They are produced, assembled, and shipped from all over the world. Knowing how a product reaches its final destination is an important part of supply chain management. This class will cover trends in global supply chains, such as ocean transportation and overseas manufacturing (offshoring). How can we make the best sourcing decisions and how do we ensure supplier performance when they are in another country and time zone?
