Course Description This class presents a synthesis of principles in logistics and supply chain activities emphasizing integration of transportation, inventory, warehousing, facility location, customer service, packaging, and materials handling. Understanding both functional areas and how they connect provides the knowledge for planning, organizing, operating, and controlling supply chains following sound business logistics principles. A main goal of this course is to enable students to incorporate these principles under an overall conceptual supply chain strategy framework. Another important objective is to develop among students a greater ability to apply these principles to effectively solve practical supply chain management problems. To accomplish these goals, the class includes three quizzes and three examinations – two midterms and a final. All quizzes and exams are designed to help students integrate the course material. The course also includes in-class exercises to encourage students to work on and integrate class principles throughout the semester. Therefore, students are expected to put in effort outside and inside the classroom working on assignments. Finally, students will have the opportunity to work in teams and analyze case studies in logistics and supply chain management. Teams will share their observations with the professor for constructive feedback. Students are expected to present their viewpoints in the classroom and actively participate in discussions with other class participants throughout the semester.
