Companies operate along supply chains that are linked horizontally and vertically. Understanding the way they interact and learning about the kind and degree of links between the partners in such a supply chain is essential to make companies successful within an ever-changing world of global business.
Issues from a theoretical point of view, decision making based on established methods to estimate operations & supply chain management implications, and a rather practically-oriented approach have to be considered in order to get an in-depth understanding of firm operations and interfirm supply chains and networks. The integrated module combines operations and supply chain management topics.
