MGMT19106  Supply Chain Management

This course introduces, defines and explains supply chain management. The concept and practice of supply chain management has grown dramatically in the last 10 years. It is now considered that in many markets, it is the supply chains that compete and not individual organisations. Supply chain management brings together differing functions eg marketing and logistics within the one organisation and the management of differing organisations eg suppliers, manufacturers and distributors. It requires sophisticated communication, extensive trust, and high level management skills. The objectives of the supply chain manager are:

  • Seamless movement of goods
  • Efficient and effective delivery systems which are customer focused
  • Cost minimisation of logistics and marketing processes
  • Simplification of all processes
  • Total quality of product delivered and associated services.
