Student teams from six engineering schools in Morocco competed last week in a supply chain competition loosely based on the supply chain of a real Moroccan company. The goal of the competition was to redesign and expand the company supply chain to best support its sales growth and
Early this year we were contacted by a team of engineering students in Singapore who inquired about using our supply chain simulations to help them prepare for a regional supply chain contest: Dear Michael, My name is Tay Jia Shin and I am writing on behalf of our team consisting of Timothy Chu,
In SCM Globe, supply chains are created by combinations of the four supply chain entities – Products, Facilities, Vehicles, Routes. So to build a model of any supply chain involves defining the characteristics of these four entities and then combining them to create the supply chain you are
Sam Walton decided to build a company that would serve a mass market and compete on the basis of price. He did this by creating one of the world’s most efficient supply chains. The structure and operations of this company have been defined by the need to lower its costs and increase its
Supply chain simulation competitions are a good way to teach both supply chain skills and teamwork - a combination much in demand these days. Students practice applying what they learn in readings and lectures to solve problems in realistic supply chain simulations. And the simulations show which
The U.S. Department of Defense is embarking on an initiative to create a more agile and adaptable medical force. Healthcare depends on medical logistics, and military medical logistics needs to change and adapt to handle a future environment characterized by volatility, uncertainty and complexity.
Gonzalo Florez-Giraldo is working on his degree in global supply chain management and logistics at Houston Community College. A degree in supply chain management opens up a lot of opportunities, because Houston is a hub of commerce with its busy seaport and its location at the center of a
Supply chain simulations are usually so complicated only a few experts know how to use them. But SCM Globe simulations are both easy and accurate. That makes them useful to a wide audience of academic, professional and business people. Anyone wishing to teach about supply chains, or analyze the
