Spring, 2008 Professor: Blake Johnson Contact : [email protected] , (858) 699-8827 Office hours : Before and after class, or by appointment Course web page : Class meeting time: Tuesdays, 2:15-5:00 Exceptions : - No class on Tuesday April 8 - During the week of April 14 we will meet on Thursday April 17, not Tuesday April 15 Description Business performance, from the operational to strategic, is increasingly driven by uncertainty in supply, demand, competition, and technology. The core management processes of nearly all companies, however, continue to be based on deterministic plans and software infrastructure which ignore uncertainty. To address this need this course presents operational management processes that enable uncertainty to be systematically incorporated in a company’s planning and management processes, and in the design and execution of its supply chain relationships. We will cover methods for supply chain planning and execution, performance measurement, incentives, and accountability, and enabling software and data management. The methods will be illustrated with best practice case examples from companies including Agilent, Apple, Boeing, Dell, Fedex, Ford, Fresh Express, GM, HP, Intel, Mattel, Netflix, Sony, TSMC, Toyota, and Zara.
