MN4485 Supply Chain Strategy

This course is concerned with the development of managerial, economical, and sociological thinking in the context of supply chain management. Most people consume products without thinking about the vast networks of supply chains that brought that cold can of soda into your hand. These networks include people, products, money, information, and transportation. The principal objective of SCM is to deliver the right product to the right customer at the right time while incurring the lowest cost possible. In the context of defense supply chain scholars going as long ago as Sun Tzu in his book the Art of War stresses the importance of good SCM in ensuring dominance in wars and conflicts. Mathematics, economics, and sociology all come together in SCM. Critically thinking about all three of these areas will be essential in your development into becoming an expert.
