OPM 314 Logistical Planning and Supply Chain Management

5 CR
A supply chain is a sequence of organizations involved in the production and delivery of a product or service. Supply chain management is the coordination of those organizations, and logistics is the management of the flow of resources e.g. goods, materials, and information, between the organizations. This course will introduce students to the complexities of domestic and global supply chains including consideration of make/buy and outsourcing decisions. The importance of the procurement function is explored, and inventory management techniques are presented including the application of mathematical approaches to solve typical problems. Finally, the use of materials resource planning (MRP), manufacturing resource planning (MRPII) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in operations management is examined.
Prerequisite(s): OPM 311  with a C or higher.
