Much has been written about the use of drones for delivery (click here). What do you think are the enablers and barriers to this technology?
Here is an article which summarizes how artificial intelligence is being used in supply chains (click here). Summarize your thoughts on the topic and provide an example, if possible, about use of AI in supply chain.
Think for 100 seconds, and summarize the key things that you learned in the class during the semester.
Think for 100 seconds, and summarize the key things that you learned in the class during Week 13 (Supply Chain Standards).
Test 2 will be conducted on Canvas in-class on Tuesday April 23rd.
- The test will consist of all the topics that we discussed in the class, as well as the material posted by the instructor on the course blog. The focus will be topics discussed since test 1 (Weeks 7 thru 14).
- This study guide contains the list of relevant topics. While I have tried to make this list as comprehensive as possible, I may have inadvertently missed a topic or two, which may be included in the exam.
- The test will be administered on-line during class using Canvas Come to class prepared with your laptop and be ready to access the Canvas system to take the test.
- The exam is open book / open notes.
- Maximum amount of time to complete the exam is 100 minutes. The test will time automatically and submit 100 minutes after you access it.
- Test 2 is the same format as test 1. There will be multiple choice, true false, and short answer questions.
- Here is a copy of a sample test 2 (click here).
- Some of the questions relate to this realistic but fictitious small business case (click here). You are encouraged to pre-read, print, etc. the case prior to the exam and bring a copy to test 2.
Global Supply Chain Management Simulation
We will be running the Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) simulation starting in class on April 16th.
In preparation for this, you need to:
- Organize into groups of two and have one individual from each team register for the simulation (note, only 1 account is needed per team). The registration can be completed at the HBSP website for the course – only one person per team should register .
An Extra Credit bonus of 0.5 point will be provided if you:
a) Complete the registration by Sunday, April 14th (noon) &
b) Post the username and e-mail address you used to register as a comment to this post. Also mention the name of your group member. You may enter your group info directly on Canvas under People -> GSCM Groups.
2. Read through the attached instructions before we begin the simulation. This will give you an overview of the game, how it works and what some of your activities (e.g. decisions) will be.
3. Print out or store electronically the Student Record sheet (below). You will use this sheet during the course of the simulation to record your decisions and actions.
The deliverables for this assignment are:
- Student Record Sheet – please complete this as you work on the simulation. Enter detailed explanations for each decision in the space provided. Submit the completed record sheets for all 4 years.
- Table to fill only when you complete year 4. Comment on which costs (as fraction of revenue) are high, and how you can improve.
The due date for submission of all deliverables is April 23rd, 2019 @ 5:30 pm (beginning of class). Due to the test on that day, you can request an extension on this assignment without any penalty.
What is blockchain interoperability, and why is it important in supply chains?
In small groups, research and discuss examples of how combinations of technologies such as Blockchain + IoT and/or Artificial Intelligence can be used in supply chains.
Write a summary of your analysis, alongwithnames of group members, on the course blog.
Q. How do you use supply chains to compete in information goods?
A. By reducing the attractiveness of your competitors’ downstream platforms.
While Netflix claims that their decision to kill Apple AirPlay support is more for technical reasons, one cannot help notice that it came at a time when Apple announced its streaming service to compete with Netflix.
Is the decision to kill Airplay support a good strategy by Netflix?? Your thoughts.
