Course Overview

What is supply chain management and Logistics? Supply chain management is a wide range of activities essential to plan, control and execute a product’s flow, from raw material procurement, production through distribution to the final customer, in the most cost-effective and streamlined manner possible.

Logistics, on the other hand, is an important function of the supply chain that involves planning and execution capabilities. It is the capability that organisations make use of in order to plan total requirements, which is then communicated to procurement and other functions for sourcing.

Supply chain management includes flow alignment, function integration, process coordination, complex system designing, resource management, etc.

Logistics management is a supply chain management element that is used to meet customer demands through the planning, control and implementation of the effective movement and storage of information, goods and services from origin to destination. These functions are extremely critical to meet the desired objectives and contribute to organisational growth and success.
