Course Aims

This workshop aims to provide students with both an overview and in-depth knowledge about the implementation issues, major challenges, and the best and the local practices of logistics and supply chain management.

Logistics and supply chain management has emerged as a fast moving global trend in response to increasingly demanding consumers, shifting competitive environments and rapidly changing technologies. Facing with today's highly competitive, more global and highly dynamic business environment, it is no longer sufficient to create efficiency and responsiveness within just one company, or within just one country.

Based on knowledge gained from the previous course, MS5313 Analytical Methods for Operations & SCM or equivalent, this course is designed to look at the logistics management of resources and assets across organizational boundaries throughout the supply chain.

Current and important topics related to logistics and supply chain management practice will be addressed via guest talks, group discussions, game playing and case studies. The applications of MS/OR approaches and other enabling technologies for supporting logistics and supply chain decision-making will be emphasized.

Provide students the information about local developments and opportunities in logistics and supply chain management.

Prepare students to take up positions in the logistics and supply chain management profession by educating them with practices of logistics and supply chain management, enabling technologies and practical training in the workshop
