|Fagligt indhold:||Supply chains connect businesses in global networks of collaboration to provide customers with services and products. Effective management of supply chains is highly dependent on up-stream and down-stream information sharing and on IT-infrastructures to capture, store and process information. Enabling supply chain management through IT represents the exemplar instance of business process innovation in the increasingly global economy and it requires complex combinations of a wide portfolio of IT hardware, software and network technologies. The course aims at enabling the student to analyze information processing requirements to support management of complex supply chains, to describe the role of IT hardware, software, and network technologies in enabling supply chain management and to help firms select and design IT solutions to support supply chainmanagement. |
