Winter 2019, BUS 304A-01: Seminar in Management: Supply Chain and Operations Management (3). Prerequisite: At least junior standing and INTR 202. Preference to BSADM majors during the first round of registration. An exploration of supply chain and operations management, with the focus divided between internal operations, logistics, and external supply relationships in order to identify opportunities for greater efficiency and effectiveness. Critically, the supply chain is viewed as a holistic entity rather than a collection of related firms. Topics include inventory management, communications and information asymmetry, production strategies, shipping, tracking, channel power, and outsourcing versus vertical integration. Statistical optimization techniques are incorporated into many of these topics, with some extended class time also dedicated to touring local manufacturing and logistics facilities. Fox.
