MGT 8040:Managing the Value Chain

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the Coles MBA or MAcc program.
The objective of this course is to learn how to maximize the overall value to the customer for the least cost possible. The value is the difference between what the final product (or service) is worth to the customer and the effort the system expends in filling the customer’s request. Successful value chain management requires several decisions relating to the flow of information and products or services. Decisions fall into these three categories: (1) value chain strategy, (2) value chain planning, and (3) value chain operations. The topics include competitive scope and the value chain, the value chain and organizational structure, product/process design, capacity/inventory management, location/distribution management, quality, forecasting, shop control, cost evaluation, and their interrelationships.
