Supply chains are essential to how most businesses provide products and services to their customers, and supply chain management (SCM) involves decisions about assets, products, information and funds. This course provides an overview of key supply chain management concepts using the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) framework that includes planning, supplier evaluation and selection, production and service provision processes, delivery and returns. The focus is on concepts and tools to improve supply chain decision making.
