  • Introduction to Supply Chain Management

    Introduction to Supply Chain Management is the first course in the Supply-Chain specialization. Learners examine how, as the world becomes more automated along with an increased use of sophisticated technologies, the traditional supply chain is set to evolve. The digital transformation of the supply chain will have an impact on supply agility as well as on the dimensions of costs, capital and service offerings. The ability to be adaptable, flexible, and integrated with technology are defining concepts for future supply chains. As supply moves forward, digital transformation will impact key supply function including: the physical flow of goods, warehouse automation, and smart logistics planning. Organizations such as Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Alibaba have complex supply chains that incorporate advanced technologies such as AI and robotics. Each of these organizations has revolutionized and re-shaped the approach to both logistics and supply chain management. A supply chain risk management strategy must now include considerations for non-traditional risks such as cyber attacks, biological attacks, and political attacks. In this course learners are provided with an overview of the field of supply chain management including the logistics management functions and the interrelationships among the different organizational functions. Learners examine effective supply chain strategies and logistics functions from a global perspective.

  • The Impact of E-Commerce on the Supply Chain

    Impact of E-Commerce on the Supply Chain helps learners understand how E-commerce, a reality for almost all organizations, has given rise to the need for evolution in supply chain management. The increased use of, and sophistication in, technology has driven consumers to demand goods and services in an almost instantaneous manner. The idea of waiting weeks to receive goods or the concept of services taking days to complete has been replaced by consumers demanding goods and services delivered as fast as they can perform the Internet search. This change in consumer behavior has made the supply chain a top priority for organizations. A real-time, highly visible, and highly accurate approach to key supply chain functions as they relate to e-commerce is needed.

    In this course, learners examine the principles and practices of e-commerce as they relate to the supply chain initiatives at the regional and global level, including an omni-channel approach as an effective way for organizations to manage the supply chain, and the role that e-commerce data has played in the evolution of supply chain management.

  • Transportation and Reverse Logistics Management

    Transportation and Reverse Logistics Management helps learners understand two key aspects of the supply chain process: transportation and reverse logistics. In moving goods and services within and across the supply chain, organizations need to adapt and respond in a timely and strategic manner. A key concern as the transportation industry evolves is the shortage of skilled labor balanced against the need for increased automation. Organizations will need to make strategic decisions regarding resource allocation. This course provides an overview of the transportation industry from a global perspective. Learners examine ways to apply global transportation strategies across the supply chain. This course also highlights best practices in reverse logistics, moving goods back through the supply chain.

  • Integrated Supply Chain Management and Sustainable Operations

    Integrated Supply Chain Management and Sustainable Operations explores different approaches needed by organizations as they evolve in the 21st century. A key aspect in creating sustainable operations is minimizing the use of natural resources. Two key components of an integrated supply chain are value creations and the reduction of waste across the entire chain. The supply chain is a complex network of independent functions within the organization that rely on each other. Integrating these functions requires a multifaceted approach addressing strategic, operational and technological capacities. As technology becomes more sophisticated, one way to increase the value of the entire supply chain is through the use of artificial intelligence. The first part of this course examines the principles, practices, and applications of integrated supply chain management. Achieving sustainable operations requires a concerted effort from organizations to shift their thinking to a triple bottom line approach: people, profit, planet. The Triple Bottom line approach requires organizations to examine ways to reduce waste by compartmentalizing the different aspects of growth with a focus on sustainability. The second half of this course examines the principles, practices, and applications of sustainable operations as they relate to UN SDG #12. Learners examine the wider framework of building sustainable operations by incorporating an integrated supply chain.
