Supply Chain Information Systems

15 credits

For today’s organizations to remain competitive, they need to deliver high value to their customers while continuing to be profitable. They can achieve this through the implementation and management of efficient and effective material, financial and information flows. Supply Chain Information Systems enable and support these flows while storing, securing and making available the large amounts of data, some of which is highly complex, needed to be shared within an organization and with its customers and suppliers. These systems are essential in Supply Chain Management as they enable the increased availability, reliability and quality of the information needed to support rapid and confident decision making at all organizational levels.

In this course you will learn about the main capabilities and applications of the various Supply Chain Information Systems and the different approaches to configuring/customizing them and managing their implementation; their role in sustainability will also be explored. You will be introduced to the different information systems used within commercial organizations and in collaboration with their customers and suppliers.
