Time Allocation (1 credit hour = 45 minutes)
The course is an elective course designed for Engineering Master of Computer Science in International Engineering Institute. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. SCM has been defined as the “design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally”. This course is an introduction to the supply chain with the basic concept of supply chain management, supply chain network design, supply chain management strategies and tactics, supply chain logistics management, supply chain management and supply chain performance evaluation.
Fundamentals of Management: to understand the basic concepts and principles of management
The aim of this course is to help students to master the theory and basic skills in supply chain management, supply chain logistics management, and the capacity for initial supply chain logistics management. After this course, students should be able to:
