Supply Chain & Information Systems Major
Supply Chain and Information Systems (SC&IS) is a boundary-spanning field of supply chain networks, which organizations use to acquire, produce, and deliver goods and services all over the world. Our program integrates source (strategic procurement and supply management), make (manufacturing and service operations), deliver (demand fulfillment), and return (reverse logistics, recycle, and remanufacture) processes, along with information systems as the critical enabler of supply chain efficiencies and responsiveness.
These core processes span traditional functional boundaries and encompass important activities such as information management; purchasing; inventory flow scheduling and control; logistics-production coordination; transportation systems operation and infrastructure; and customer service, order fulfillment, and distribution facilities management.
