AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The module aims at providing the basics on supply chain resiliency, intended as the ability of a company to protect the continuity of supply and achieve sustained operational performance in the event of global mult-tier disruptions of any type at any frequency from ongoing to catastrophic. The course will focus particularly on SCRM 2000 and on the requirements of ISO 28000, PD 25222, and ISO 31000. Modeling and simulation will be extensively used to support quantitative scenario evaluation over multi-tier, multi-product SCM.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course addresses the operational structure of the modern and global supply chain by identifying risk mitigation strategies through careful stock management, redundancy and mitigation of operational risks

TEACHING METHODS

the lectures are mostly teorically based with the use of case studies, classroom exercises and assigments. Seminars are proposed based on high qualified professionals and managers.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam provides for a single evaluation of each of the following elements, the grade being the sum of the individual evaluations:

1. The student's delivery of calculation reports related to Assignments.

2. Oral discussion of an in-depth report on one of the lessons discussed

3. A multiple-choice test on all subjects covered by the course.

 

4. Evaluation of the frequency of teaching activities (lessons and exercises) proposed in the classroom

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Deep verification of the knowledge acquired during the lectures, assigments given to test the students practical skills acquired, effective comunication attitude tested during the discussion of the final assigments reports.
