purchasing and supply chain management There are 3 course works 1 [supply chain 1-2500 word You need to analyse an existing supply chain structure and strategies of an organisation and suggest any improvements that need to be made. Strategies in Supply Chain refers to their e.g., tools, techniques, policies and frameworks. You need to sketch the organisation?s SC structure (SC Map) ? you can use e.g., the grocery SC structure diagram (As-Is/Current SC Model). Examples include a study of the manufacturing/production based SC, engineering based SC, service based SC, distribution system and store deliveries at McDonalds, design of a logistics system for a manufacturer of refrigeration equipment, hubs and any relevant examples (you can choose any real life organisations). Identify all relevant nodes (stakeholders) in the SC (of your selected organisations). Then identify the existing SC capability, significant SC issues in the external/internal SC of the organisation. You need to undertake node-by-node analysis for As-Is SC structure. After identifying issues for your organisation?s SC structure, you need to improve the SC problems and SC responses and sketch/draw ?To Be (improved)? SC Model for the organisation. Similarly you need to do an improved (?To Be?) node-by-node analysis. Selection of the nodes and their combination (for node-by-node analysis) are entirely up to you but please only identify significant SC issues ? as you will observe from your investigation/research some nodes demonstrate similar SC issues and responses. You also need to consider the logic of the SC structure (the individual nodes sequence when selecting combination of different nodes). ]
