BM 446 - Capstone

3 cr.
This course asks students to apply the skills they have learned in their business and supply chain management education to a series of challenges. In the first part, students solve challenges in logistics, operations, planning, and sourcing faced by a fictional company.  In the second part, students will be tasked with addressing a real supply chain problem, and will work in groups to produce a solution which will consist of a report and a presentation. In this capstone project, students will take on the role of supply chain consultants, redesigning the existing supply chain of a consumer products company with the goals of implementing lean inventory management, and using six sigma processes to improve efficiency and allow the company to bring new products to market more rapidly. At the end of the course, students will therefore have real world experience that they can show employers as part of a larger portfolio. Students will also have the opportunity to present their final projects to supply chain professionals, which will allow them to gain an understanding of how their knowledge will interact with the real world and will serve as a de-facto screeningprocess for a coveted role within the industry. Prerequisites: BM 357  and BM 358
