Description

Introduction

During the last two decades, many within-firm improvement strategies have been attempted: materials requirements planning (MRP), manufacturing resource planning (MRP II), business process reengineering (BPR), enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, total quality management (TQM), Six-Sigma, lean operations, etc. The emphasis is now shifting to supply chain efforts i.e., inter-firm improvement strategies, to ensure a coordinated response from the entire supply chain.

Competing effectively in the new market place requires an up-to-date knowledge of best practices in supply chain integration in various areas: collaborative design of products and services, design for logistics, inter-organisational demand forecasting, coordinated inventory management, new ways of partnering with key suppliers and distributors, and strategic sourcing. The arrival of Internet-based information technologies has also created unprecedented opportunities to improve inter-firm communication and coordination, and this programme will cover effective application of information systems to realise supply chain integration
