Synopsis

In this course students will examine a range of supply chain examples to gain a broader understanding of the similarities and differences that impact on business. Students will also explore impact factors to learn the governing influences and how to interpret and recommend changes accordingly. This course focusses on the design and development of supply chains, influencing factors and how to improve functions and processes. Students will be required to develop contextualised research processes to explore and design supply chain operations. Students may choose their own industry supply chain by agreement or use examples supplied. The course is designed to build research skills in creating a detailed goods movement process that allows for analysis of strengths and weaknesses in the system.

The course relies heavily on industry experience and input. Students with industry experience will be encouraged to share their industry experience with others. It is intended that students will be able to apply course learning directly into workplace practices.
