Logistics and Supply Chain Management provides an introduction to logistics concepts in both the business and government environment.

Emphasis will be placed on the challenges related to providing logistical support for procurement, manufacturing, and life cycle support. The course will focus on supply chain strategies, logistics information systems, order fulfillment, inventory, demand forecasting, and collaborative planning. In addition, the student will be introduced to transportation constraints, third party logistics (3PL), warehousing, materials handling, international logistics and facility planning.
