Teaching Supply Chain Management

Readings and lectures are good, yet when it comes to meeting today's students where they live, we also need tools that are highly interactive and visual. Our map and satellite based supply chain simulations provide immediate and engaging graphic and numeric feedback showing supply chain performance and identifying problems. Students apply what they learn in their readings and lectures to solve problems and demonstrate proficency. Start by clicking the button below, and find out how SCM Globe is changing the way supply chain management is taught and practiced.

Collaborative Supply Chain Planning and Simulation

Traditional supply chain management focuses on centralized command and control to manage operations. Yet supply chains face increasingly volatile, uncertain, and complex environments. Networks of supply chain operators need to collaborate in real time to achieve common objectives and respond as situations unfold. Our online colaborative simulations empower people to manage supply chains as distributed teams. When all can see supply chain performance and emerging problems, when simulations show what responses work best, then consensus happens quickly. People see what needs to be done and they understand why. Use SCM Globe simulations to analyze and improve real supply chains, or design new ones. Use simulations to guide on-going supply chain planning and operations.

    SCM Globe simulations are critical to integrating the various content elements of my "Managing Business Operations" class and is very popular as a learning tool for the students. Semester after semester, class evaluations cite the popularity and practicality of the simulations. They have become a recruitment tool for the course. (Visit Salve Regina University Online)

  • The University of Maryland University Colloge, blue with a yellow curved line through it.
    SCM Globe is a very engaging simulation tool for students to learn the basics surrounding supply chain management. The tool provides a "real world" simulated environment in which various case scenarios allow students to apply the theories and concepts which they have learned in the classroom. The tool really enhances the learning experience. (Visit ASCM at University of Maryland University College Online)

  • The Dania academy logo.
    Based on your simulation model, the students learned how a supply chain actually operates. By far, the SCM Globe simulations made the course interesting and insightful. I can try and explain how a supply chain works, but to have the students actually see it happening on the computer was very educational. (Visit Dania Online)

    In a 30 day intensive supply chain and logistics seminar, student teams from around the world applied supply chain principles from their readings and lectures to solve real supply chain problems encountered in the SCM Globe simulations. SCM Globe integrated theory and practice and students found the experience engaging and enlightening. (Visit MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics Online)
