UNIT SCHEDULE 12
Have you ever been shopping and they don’t have your usual product on the shelf, or been to a excess stock sale to move stock? Both of these indicate that the product’s supply chain is not working well. This unit covers different aspects when considering a supply chain. Supply chaining has been coined by companies such as Walmart and Dell whose competitive advantage is their well designed supply chain.
The unit covers context such as inventory modelling, bull whip effect, supply chain design, procurement etc. The unit covers the topics broadly and gives students a taste of the issues involved in supply chain management.
On completion of this unit, you should be able to:
· Develop an understanding of supply chain issues
· Consider management trade-off business decisions concerning supply relationships, cost, customer service, information control which impact the supply chain.
· Understand strategies that will help improve supply chain operations.
We strongly advise students to regularly access their student email accounts. Important information regarding the unit is often communicated by email and will not be automatically forwarded to private email addresses.

TEACHING AND LEARNING RESPONSIBILITIES
Teaching and learning strategies
This unit encompasses a number of teaching strategies to facilitate student learning.
The content of this unit is not covered in any other units and to ensure students have a good understanding of the main supply chain concepts the assessment will include a mid-semester exam and a final exam.
The ability of students to analyse and consider multiple solutions to real world problems is an important aspect in this unit. To encourage students to develop analytical skills the unit includes case studies as a major assessment component. Students will be expected to not only analyse the problems, but facilitate the learning of other students through running the tutorial sessions.
Student encouragement to participate in the case analysis is through assessing tutorial participation. Tutorial participation is given a higher component to ensure that students do analyse the cases before class.
