Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

A SUPPLY CHAIN is a network of supplier, manufacturing, assembly, distribution, and logistics facilities that perform the functions of procurement of materials, transformation of these materials into intermediate and finished products, and the distribution of these products to customers. Supply chains arise in both manufacturing and service organizations. SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT  (SCM) is a systems approach to managing the entire flow of information, materials, and services from raw materials suppliers through factories and warehouses to the end customer. SCM is different from SUPPLY MANAGEMENT which emphasizes only the buyer-supplier relationship.

Supply chain management has emerged as the new key to productivity and competitiveness of manufacturing and service enterprises. The importance of this area is shown by a significant spurt in research in the last five years and also proliferation of supply chain solutions and supply chain companies (e.g. i2, Manugistics, etc.). All major ERP companies are now offering supply chain solutions as a major extended feature of their ERP packages.

Supply chain management is a major application area for Internet Technologies and Electronic Commerce (ITEC). In fact, advances in ITEC have contributed to growing importance of supply chain management and SCM in turn has contributed to many advances in ITEC. 
 

SCM has two major faces to it. The first can be called loosely as the back-end and comprises the physical building blocks such as the 
supply facilities, production facilities, warehouses, distributors, retailers, and logistics facilities. The back-end essentially involves 
production, assembly, and physical movement. Major decisions here include:

   1. Procurement (supplier selection, optimal procurement policies, etc.)

   2. Manufacturing (plant location, product line selection, capacity planning, production scheduling, etc.)

   3. Distribution (warehouse location, customer allocation, demand forecasting, inventory management, etc.)

   4. Logistics (selection of logistics mode, selection of ports, direct delivery, vehicle scheduling, etc.)

   5. Global Decisions (product and process selection, planning under uncertainty, real-time monitoring and control, integrated scheduling)

Stochastic models (Markov chains, queueing networks), optimization models (LP, ILP, MILP, heuristics), and simulation provide the basis for the above decisions.

The second face (which can be called the front-end) is where IT and ITEC play a key role. This face involves processing and use of information to facilitate and optimize the back-end operations. Key technologies here include: EDI (for exchange for information across different players in the supply chain); Electronic payment protocols; Internet auctions (for selecting suppliers, distributors, demand forecasting, etc.); Electronic Business Process Optimization; E-logistics; Continuous tracking of customer orders through the Internet; Internet-based shared services manufacturing; etc. 

 

Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Upon successful completion of this course, students will have reliably demonstrated the ability to:

1. Identify the goal of a supply chain, and evaluate the impact of supply chain decisions on the success of a firm.
2. Categorize the performance measures that are relevant to a supply chain.
3. Examine the role of forecasting as a basis for supply chain planning, and create a time series forecast using moving averages, exponential smoothing, and regression.
4. Explain the "bullwhip effect", and illustrate through examples, the flow of material between supply chain partners.
5. Compare the major applications of supply chain information technology.

Modalità di valutazione

 Broadly speaking the exam consists in an oral test, taken the same day the exam is scheduled (or the next one, or anyway within the week the exam is scheduled).

Depending on the number of people involved in the process, students who are supposed to take the exam might be required to take one (or sometimes more than one) written questions, followed by an oral test (often the same day).

Exams deal with the whole course, i.e. all the subjects covered in every class, including cases, exercises, games, speeches of practitioners or whatever else.

Within the course (during the regular semester), two specific classes will be devoted respectively to the mid-term exam and to the early-bird exam. The outputs of these classes can be considered as self-evaluation or they can be evaluated on demand. If you get a passing grade (i.e. a grade greater than or equal to 18 out of 30) – you will be given a final mark (usually the average value of the two marks – provided that both of them are good), which could be accepted and recorded in the exam book. Recording must be accomplished within the session (winter or summer) just after the end of the classes: marks cannot be “frozen” any longer.

Should you are willing to improve your mark – even once you have a passing grade after the mid-term and the early-bird exam – you can anyway take an additional oral test. However, this additional oral test might either improve or worsen your seminal mark or even it might result in a poor overall grade, which makes you undertake again the exam (starting from scratch.

Seldom, the final mark you are given does not match the average value of the mid-term grade and the early-bird one. E.g., 16 and 20 usually do not lead to 18 as final grade. Likewise 16 and 30 or even 18 and 30. Rarely, you could be given 18 as final mark without the opportunity of improving it through any additional oral test. This means that something is not crystal-clear and – to get more – you have to undertake a “new” exam from the beginning (starting from scratch).

Besides, students are given the opportunity to present their analyses of some (or all) case studies developed along the semester, which entitles them to get an additional mark (weighted in a similar way as the early bird and the mid term exam) to form their final grade. Team working to handle case studies is warmly recommended.
