OVERVIEW

Supply chain mapping is a valuable tool to increase your understanding of supply chains and supply chain management (SCM). Supply chain mapping clarifies the strategic and integrative nature of SCM. Supply chain maps are inherently cross-functional and inter-organizational. Mapping is an important analytical tool in process management and strategic SCM. A good supply chain map clearly identifies critical parties or members of the supply chain, relationships among these members, and activities that need to be performed. Mapping is often the first step in more detailed supply chain analysis, e.g., supply chain mapping can be a useful tool to support strategic supply chain decisions in areas such as cycle time reduction and supply chain risk evaluation and management (SCREAM). In this seminar, participants will learn about the purposes of supply chain mapping, various characteristics of supply chain maps, and challenges in creating useful supply chain maps. Participants will also begin to create supply chain maps in the context of their organizations.
