SCM 530 Procurement & Manufacturing for Supply Chain Excellence
Assess the role of operations management and its effective integration with other activities in the supply chain. Supply management and procurement, manufacturing, and service operations are explored as they relate to linking market demand to supplier identification and selection, sourcing activities, as well as manufacturing planning, processes and control, and quality and performance management. The critical role of technology in managing operations is also discussed.

SCM 570 Integrated Logistics Management
