No companies operate in a bubble.
No matter how efficient a company’s operations might be, they are ultimately part of a much larger supply chain.
This course is part two of a two part look at Operation Strategy.
In this course, you’ll learn what supply chain management (SCM) entails. You’ll also uncover three types of production methods: build-to-order, planned production, and delayed differentiation, and see situations where each may be desirable. You’ll also learn about the bullwhip effect and how it impacts supply chains. Finally, you’ll see how companies decide between doing things themselves or relying on outsourcing partners.
Join us and learn about the importance of supply chain management in operations today!
