Register now for the 3-day Macquarie Supply Chain Executive Program, 28-30 May 2008.
This is a collaborative initiative by Macquarie Graduate School of Management, CSIRO and the Logistics Association of Australia, with international logistics and supply chain experts including Lew Roberts (USA), Professor John Bartholdi (USA), Professor John Gattorna (Australia) and Professor Martin Christopher (UK).
Integrated Logistics and Supply Chain Management – 28-30 May 2008
CSIRO and the Logistics Association of Australia are proud to offer this three day programme featuring Lew Roberts, who has worked with major companies world wide to provide consulting and management development in the supply chain field, and Professor John Bartholdi, Research Director of the Supply Chain and Logistics Institute at the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA.
This international programme – road-tested over several years internationally – is enhanced with local expertise from the University of Wollongong and CSIRO.
Who should attend?
The programme is specifically designed for senior managers involved in the overall management of the supply chain and/or key elements of the supply chain, preferably drawn from multiple disciplines inside the enterprise. This includes managers/directors in business development, procurement, production, logistics, marketing and engineering, as well as managing directors and management consultants.
Logistics and Supply Chain specialists are the custodians of the ‘supply pipeline’ and associated infrastructure, yet everyone in the firm contributes to the workings of the firm’s supply chains on a day-to-day basis.
Integrated Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Supported jointly by CSIRO and the Logistics Association of Australia 28-30 May 2008 – Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Macquarie University, Sydney, NSW What are the supply chain configurations and decision-making processes that distinguish high performance supply chain oriented enterprises? In this course we reveal the key elements of these with a focus on:
– Sustaining competitive advantage through optimally managing variability, visibility, velocity, risk and total cost.
– Structuring and managing primary logistics functions (inventory, warehousing and transportation).
– Adaptive and effective operations management, materials management and strategic sourcing.
– Emerging supply chain technologies as part of integrated inter-enterprise processes.
Participants’ application of the understanding, tools and techniques learned in this programme will result in improved supply chain performance through:
– optimised use of critical supply chain resources;
– reduced inventory, quicker throughput and improved turnaround of orders through the supply chain;
– improved management of the three critical supply chain flows – products, information and money reduced landed cost of goods and services to end customers;
– leveraging the supply chain to improve customer service and add value.
