Assessment Task 3: 1) Assessment Details: The assessment task 3 will be a simulation based task where students gets an opportunity to design and manage the supply chain of a global phone manufacturer. During the simulation experience, students design the phone product line, forecast demand, choose a set of suppliers with different costs, lead-times and capacities, and allocate production among their chosen suppliers. After completing the product and supply chain design phases, students observe actual monthly demand being revealed dynamically, and have opportunities to respond to demand shifts and unexpected events. To manage the mobile phone lines successfully, students must balance competing priorities and create a supply chain that is flexible enough to react quickly to fluctuating demand.The simulation is repeated over a four-year period, allowing students an opportunity to refine their decision processes each year after learning from the feedback they receive about the previous year's results.

    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.
