Supply Chain Operations Management

This course covers operations from a supply chain perspective—from understanding the importance of processes and process thinking to managing the flow of products, services, and information. You will learn how supply chain partners and functional groups are becoming more integrated and how they interact with each other. You will also learn the 6S (seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, shitsuke, safety and Lean methodology). Students will be able to define and describe the planning activities required to manage operations across the supply chain from the supplier to the customer and end user.
