CARING AND GLOBAL UNIVERSITY
Kuliah Introduction to Industrial Engineering pada tanggal 23 Oktober 2017 akan diisi oleh dosen tamu Professor Terrence Perera dari Sheffield Hallam University, United Kingdom. Beliau akan mengupas kompleksitas dan tantangan yang meliputi desain, manajemen dan operasional rantai pasok dan logistik.
Behind every event, product and service there is a supply chain. Organising the right supply chain and efficient logistics are incredibly challenging as most supply chains span across the globe. The ultimate aim of any supply chain is to maximise the overall customer satisfaction.
Taking a range of examples, this presentation will introduce complexities and challenges involved in the design, management and operation of supply chains and associated logistics. Following the introduction, the presentation will illustrate how modern management tools, new technologies and IT solutions are deployed to produce effective and efficient supply chains.
There is a global skill shortage and companies are struggling to recruit graduates and professionals with appropriate logistics and supply chain management skills. This presentation will therefore conclude with a discussion on alternative learning paths available to develop core skills.
