    Overview

    Supply chains underpin the flow of goods and services from point of origin to point of consumption. This further develops specialist academic knowledge and skills to strategically manage the logistics functions in a supply chain in the context of the globalisation of business. Students will critically reflect on a range of domestic and international logistics challenges and explore global logistics functions associated with coordinating market demands and supply management. Key topics include demand management of inventory, inbound and outbound logistics functions, supply chain relationships, chain performance measurement and sustainability. Students will engage in a wide range of learning activities including problem-solving sessions, case study analysis, peer discussion and review, and self-reflection. Assessment will involve a major industry report, a group presentation and an online in-class test.
