|SCM (Supply Chain Management) 101|
The concept of supply chain management has been around for many years and all of us are part of a supply chain in some way. Think about things you do every day like eat, brush your teeth, and put on clothes. Have you ever thought about where these products like your favourite toothpaste or brand of bread comes from? How did they get to the store where you bought them from? How do you feel when you go to the store to buy your favourite loaf of bread and it is not in stock? All these products have gone through a similar process to reach you, the customer, and for which you are prepared to pay money for.
About the course
The Supply Chain Management 101 will introduce you to the fundamentals of supply chain as well as the process of managing the different parts that make up the supply chain.
The course is based on The Ushokolate Company, a fictitious company that has been created to describe the supply chain in this training course.
The intention of this course is to introduce learners, at basic entry level, to supply chains and supply chain management as well as those that are new entrants into the profession. Based on a solid body of knowledge that has evolved over the past half-century, this course sets the foundation for further, more advanced study, in supply chain and its management.
While there are no prerequisites for this course, some formal educational background will only enhance participant learning. Some sections have some quantitative content, so knowledge of basic mathematics is an asset.
