In this subject you will explore the significance of information utilisation and sharing in supply chain management. The subject will cover how proper use of real-time information can help reduce inventory, lead time, cycle time, and other wastes in the supply chain and enhance overall efficiency and responsiveness. The use of information in this way relies heavily on computer hardware and software, particularly information technology developed around the Internet.
The rationale behind the migration from traditional supply chain to e-supply chain, and the approach to implementing e-supply chain using available technologies will be a major theme in the subject.
