Über den Kurs

As a human being, we all consume products and/or services all the time. This morning you got up and ate your breakfast, e.g., eggs, milk, bread, fresh fruits, and the like. After the breakfast, you drove your car to work or school. At your office, you used your computer, perhaps equipped with 27” LCD monitor. During your break, you drank a cup of coffee and played with your iPhone. So on and so forth. You probably take it for granted that you can enjoy all of these products. But if you take a closer look at how each of these products can be made and eventually delivered to you, you will realize that each one of these is no short of miracle. For example, which fruit do you like? Consider fresh strawberries. In order for the strawberries to be on your breakfast table, there must be numerous functions, activities, transactions, and people involved in planting, cultivating, delivering, and consuming strawberries. Moreover, all of these functions, activities, transactions, and people are connected as an integral chain, through which physical products like strawberries themselves and virtual elements such as information and communication flow back and forth constantly. By grouping related functions or activities, we have a supply chain, comprised of four primary functions such as supplier, manufacturer, distributor, and finally consumer. A supply chain is essentially a value chain. For the society or economy as a whole, the goal is to maximize value, i.e., to create satisfactory value without spending too much. In order to create the maximum value for the strawberry supply chain, every participant in the chain must carry out its function efficiently. In addition, all of the members must coordinate with each other effectively in order to ensure value maximization. We have to face the same issues for almost all the products and services we take for granted in our everyday life, e.g., cars, hamburgers, haircuts, surgeries, movies, banks, restaurants, and you name it! In this course, we want to understand fundamental principles of value creation for the consumers or the market. We try to answer questions like how the product or service is made, how the value-creating activities or functions are coordinated, who should play what leadership roles in realizing all these, and so on. As our course title hints, we approach all of these issues from a learning perspective, which is dynamic in nature and emphasizes long-term capability building rather than short-term symptomatic problem solving....

Really great learning course. I am a student and wanted to brush up my basics of SCM and also have a comprehensive aspect of Supply Chain like the Quality management, New Product development, Supply chain issues like Bullwhip effect, Global Supply chain. This is an unique course which touches upon all above mentioned aspects as well as different topics in supply chain but in a learning perspective which is generally not specifically focused in colleges or universities. You may might find some parts of lectures bit slow or boring but I think the professor's knowledge and the contents of course talk about the value in it. Thanks Professor Bowon Kim!

A very good experience. The subject covered is much more than supply chain management. A well-presented lecture. However the content looks dated, an update will be very helpful.

I'm a fresh graduate with chemical engineering background. I found it to be very suitable for me, it helps me put together all the preceding knowledge into one supply chain management framework. The materials is still understandable while maintaining its capability to give quite amount of new knowledge & information. The only thing that probably can be improved is the audio quality. Sometimes, I needed some time to understand some words said by Professor Kim. But in the end, Professor Kim is an excellent teacher, love his explanation.

Real good lesson than give us a good learning of why supply chain have an important role in a company and without enter in the details we have a good understanding of the company challenges to stay sustainable in the time. If, like me, you strive after grow a company, this lesson is necessary to plan the structure, ethical & organization.

More Kim Bowon is a great teacher and the plan of these lessons (even the graph) are usefull to keep going the course. Thanks to him.

I loved this class! I loved the professor, It was very well taught, and it was very easy to follow along with even with no prior experience with supply chain management. I took this class because I want to major in supply chain management in college, and I wanted to figure out if it was really something I was interested in. After taking this class, I feel like I understand the basics of supply chain management, and I highly recommend taking this class if you are considering getting a degree in supply chain management, or if you just want to learn something new. The class only takes 1-2 hours per week, and it is completely free, so it can easily fit in with any budget and/or schedule. Overall, I am very happy I took this class, and am very satisfied with the amount of knowledge I have gained over the last few weeks!

This course was ambitious in its breadth and scope which added to the challenge and satisfaction of learning the wide range of concepts covered. I am particularly grateful for the context provided during the lectures and the real world company specific and industry specific examples used to reinforce the theoretical concepts covered. I also appreciated the focus of the teachings which I feel was trying to give students the maximum motivation to apply these management and supply chain concepts in the real world within which we work. I felt the course also promoted Ethical and moral issues and sustainability issues that we may all face working in commerce and I was grateful for this learning perspective which encouraged participants to think deeply about the impact business can have on wider society

I was expecting something that would take a lot of time but to my surprise the learning prospect to the difficulty is just apt. To which i can still manage to do other things and get back to the topic with ease was expecting to come in to the course to learn directly about Supply Chain Management but in reality I learned more; such that even though I looked at this course for something to do on the side but in the end it got me engaged through the learnings and motivated me to have this course have an actual effect on my future career and such.

I believe this is a great course whether you're a beginner in Supply Chain Management or already have not only some theoretical background but even practical/work experience as in my personal case.

The approach that Prof. Kim uses in order to explain the concepts is very different than the one that I had when first being introduced to these concepts and I believe this makes the difference. This has a given me a new perspective and for sure from now on I'll look at SCM from a different point of view than I had used so far.
