This course provides a fundamental definition of the role of technology and systems in supply chain management, demonstrating how “people and processes” intersect with these increasingly important tools. Students will learn how system and technology strategy can become key differentiators in the field across the six pillars of the supply chain and are required to integrate disparate suppliers and partners. Specific current and future trends will be explored, including the implications across local, national, and global systems. The focus will be related to the strategic, operational, and tactical design and execution of technology and systems related to how supply chains operate. TRAN 4100, 4110, 4120, 4130.
