Instruction Module MGT3373 – Week7 (Heizer 10e) Instructor Comments/Notes: Reminder : In this Instruction Module (and every one to follow) I will ‘recommend’ several textbook discussion questions, even-number exercises, and Case studies for you to attempt/study. Although I will ultimately provide the solutions/answers, I urge you to work them on your own before reading the solution/answer as a pre-test of your comprehension. I will also give you the solutions to additional problems in the Course Material section of my Blackboard page. . The purpose, of course, is to enhance your process of self-study. This mimics what is normally done in a classroom presentation: review of the material and working example problems. PLEASE NOTE: the Self-Test discussion questions, even-numbered exercises, additional problems and Case studies are for your own study and are NOT to be turned in to the instructor. Unless otherwise stated, the ONLY parts of the assignments that are to be submitted each week are the quiz responses. In addition to the specific items posted in the weekly Instruction Modules, I urge all students to do the following: - Go to the Pearson Companion site and practice with the Self-Study Quizzes - Go to the Pearson Companion site and work the Practice Problems - Work the “Solved Problems” in each chapter on your own before reading the solutions - Overview: In Chapter 11 “Supply Chain Management” we will discuss the strategic implications of supply-chain management. We will evaluate various strategies for structuring an organization’s supply chain and their managerial implications. We will also discuss acquisition topics such as; outsourcing, vendor selection, and the impact of the internet. In Chapter 11S “Outsourcing as a Supply Chain Strategy” we will discuss the many issues associated with outsourcing decisions, including core competencies, risks, advantages and disadvantages of such strategies. We will also discuss quantitative techniques in assessing the decision to outsource. In Chapter 12 “Inventory Management” we will look at methods for estimating, controlling and managing an organization’s inventory needs. We will discuss models for independent and dependent demand situations, including deterministic and probabilistic models.
