There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Organisations attempt to understand and control the cost structures of operating and/or being an integral component of a supply chain network. These structures can span the spectrum of input requirements (supply) and customer expectations (demand) and, as such, can include costs associated with procurement, warehousing and logistics. A detailed analysis of the supply and demand aspects helps identify opportunities for redesigning logistic networks and assists organisations predict performance outcomes to mitigate potential problems. This subject teaches learners to use qualitative and quantitative methods to make decisions around supply chain logistics network design, including last-mile delivery scenarios and their management. The strategic and tactical dimensions provide learners an in-depth understanding of how to position different building blocks whilst ensuring alignment across upstream and downstream logistics and sustainable logistic networks. Learners study ethical sourcing techniques and data analysis methodologies to optimise distribution and warehousing decisions.
