Omschrijving Almost all companies face an increased complexity in their supply chains caused by global competition, more demanding customers, worldwide outsourcing and sustainability requirements. This course introduces students to strategic and global aspects of manufacturing and supply chain management. The course offers an overview of contemporary theoretical findings in the field through a book and lectures, complemented with research papers, which are assessed in a literature examination. Specifically, the course focuses on buyer-supplier relationships, the use of ICT in those relations, the role of outsourcing, and the importance of sustainability and corporate social responsibility in shaping supply chains. Students have to complete several practical oriented cases and are trained in using and evaluating literature through writing reviews of relevant scientific papers. The final part of the course is a group based project that aims at playing a supply chain game and theoretically interpreting and evaluating the results.
