Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

SCMGT303 introduces basic concepts of supply chain management, emphasising the purchasing and logistics and distribution function, involving the design, planning, execution, and control and monitoring of supply chain activities to create value and build a competitive infrastructure that synchronises supply with demand and measures performance globally.

SCMGT303 is being offered in an Asynchronous FLEXI mode this trimester, which means there are some flexible aspects of this paper that can be completed online if you so choose. However, it is highly recommended that you attend classes if possible, for the most effective learning and campus experience.

'Asynchronous FLEXI' info:

Asynchronous means that there are no elements that require students to be online at specified times.

'FLEXI teaching and learning strategies combine independent online study with in-class engagement to achieve the complete learning experience. Videos, slideshows, and other Moodle resources help prepare students for face-to-face classroom sessions in which activities offer insights that help scaffold learning. Please note that you are responsible for completing all of the online materials and tasks before attending classroom sessions, to achieve your learning goals.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

On Thursdays, the classroom session will summarise the slideshow material and the central issues, perhaps using illustrative cases and classroom exercises. On Fridays, the sessions will generally involve student-group presentations or discussion of substantive cases. Videos of the classroom sessions will be placed on Moodle to help students who have a legitimate reason for not attending class in person. Regular group work is an integral feature of this paper.

Given the rapidly changing subject matter, you are encouraged to use smartphones or other wireless devices to access online sources in class. However, the prevalence of unsubstantiated 'facts' makes it imperative to check your online sources' validity. Hearsay, 'armchair expert' opinion, thinly disguised marketing; old 'facts'; and sweeping generalisations require you to consider the Accuracy; Authority; Objectivity; Currency; and Coverage of your online sources (refer to http://guides.library.cornell.edu/evaluating_Web_pages).
