MS&E 369: Supply Chain Risk and Flexibility Management Spring, 2008 Professor: Blake Johnson Contact : [email protected] , (858) 699-8827 Office hours : Before and after class, or by appointment Course web page : http://eeclass.stanford.edu/msande369/ 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. Prerequisites Background in operations and supply chain, such as MS&E 260 or 261, parallel enrollment in MS&E 262, or consent of instructor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
