Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Any engineering business operates within part of a larger supply chain or network, whose combined processes deliver a product or service to the end customer. To increase competitive advantage businesses must not only seek to design and operate processes that add maximum value within their own entity but also strive to optimise these processes within the larger supply chain or network. The module aims to give participants an understanding of the operation of the supply chain and the opportunities that tools such as e-commerce bring for the more effective integrated operation of the supply of both products and services.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: Appreciate the appropriate application of supply chain process models for the effective supply of different products and services; Define supply chain integration requirements for the effective coordination of customers and suppliers; Utilise a number of tools, techniques and measures to manage and improve the performance of the supply chain; Appreciate the improvement opportunities and threats presented by the alignment of the complete supply chain with final customer requirements.

Timetabled teaching activities
