This course aims to demonstrate that the development of a company is no longer solely linked to its own internal factors, but increasingly depends on external factors. Therefore, Supply Chain Management has imposed itself on companies as a strategic tool for global coordination associating all the players in the flow chain. Indeed, supply chain management is the art and the way to make the right product available, at the right time, in the right place, with the right quantity, at the lowest cost and at the right customer. Supply Chain Management provides the tools and concepts to identify and redesign the physical and information flows: from production to supply, from storage to purchasing and to distribution. This module offers a transversal competence to better understand the new challenges of future managers, the deployment of a Supply Chain management which aims at the progressive integration of the upstream and downstream of the company (suppliers and customers) to achieve global performance and value creation.
