    Overview

    This unit aims to provide students an understanding of current practice, and how modern global supply networks share information using technologies. Topics covered include; Bar code, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), SAP-ERP, IoT (Internet of Things), Block chain, supply chain integration, e-Business and operations performance measurement. Student learning will involve team reflection on industrial field trip with reference to a broad range of theories and frameworks associated with e-supply chain management. Student learning in the unit will be guided and assessed by means of a literature review, a group case study analysis, a group presentation and a final examination.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Critically reflect on a range of functions of value chains and the influence that bar coding, RFID and ERP systems etc. have on them;
    2. Produce a well-structured and balanced individual report that presents a critique of value global network-related topic based upon the reading of established academic literature;
    3. Work collaboratively in a team to reflect upon experiences gained during an industry site visit with reference to theories and frameworks encountered in the unit in order to produce a professional case study report;
    4. Plan supply chain activities in teams using a supply chain management (SCM) simulation game; and
    5. Conceptually map and synthesise information from various sources to present a clear, coherent and independent exposition of knowledge in the field of value chain and technology applications.
