The decline of manufacturing activities in the United States and the corresponding increase in international contract manufacturing brings greater emphasis to the importance of sound Supply Chain Management and its impact on shareholder value. This includes how operational excellence leads to customer satisfaction. Lectures, readings, guest speakers and class discussion will teach students the concepts of supply and demand, logistics and operational organizations as well as methods of manufacturing planning, inventory control, vendor development, and quality control. Innovative approaches to introducing new product introductions will also be covered.
