Project Description

Supply change management is a highly-detailed system used by small and large organizations alike to get products to consumers, from obtaining raw materials, manufacturing and delivering the final product to the customer. A well-organized supply chain management system involves optimizing operations functionality to be fast and efficient.

Why attend

The successful management of extreme market and demand volatility has become the new mantra of supply chain managers around the globe. Macroeconomic cycles of growth, contraction and recovery have become erratic, making reliable end-to-end supply, logistics, inventory and demand planning increasingly challenging. In this increasingly globalised and interconnected competitive environment, Supply Chain and Logistics Operations must be able to face challenges that require a holistic and coordinated end-to-end overview.
The course will help companies and their employees identify the probable threats and opportunities in their supply chain network.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • • Apply and gain an in-depth knowledge on the integrated purchasing, logistics, materials and supply chain management system
    • Identify the integration between the various elements in the supply chain process
    • Use the procurement excellence model to benchmark the organisation against best in class
    • Employ the application of the integrated purchasing model and the event-process model for managing demand
    • Develop strategies for successful global supply chain management
    • Optimize the supply chain
    • Apply systematic techniques on logistical and transportation planning methods
    • Discuss logistics and transport including the essence of logistics, the three logistics options, transport process and transport management environment
    • Carryout the planning process and forecasting logistics demands
    • Illustrate the visual network model and identify the flexibility and responsiveness in operational logistics
