Inhoud vak

These days many companies are confronted with the need to differentiate
their activities from competitors. Many previously
integrated supply chains have been cut into smaller units because of,
e.g., outsourcing, off-shoring to the Far East, or focusing on core
competencies. This more and more resulted in the need to co-ordinate
activities between legally independent entities in order to avoid high
costs and to achieve competitive customer service levels. In parallel,
there is a pressure to
make operations and supply chains more sustainable while maintaining
high levels of quality. Many companies therefore consider operations and
supply chain management as a competitive weapon in differentiating
themselves from others. In this course we will discuss and apply core
concepts in analyzing and redesigning the management of operations and
supply chains.
