Weeks 5 & 6: Project 3 Case Studies
CO5: Define sourcing as a supply chain component, how to measure performance, and key strategies to improve effectiveness.
CO7: Evaluate logistics as a supply chain component, including how to measure performance, and key strategies to improve effectiveness.
For this two-week assignment, you will be answering a series of questions regarding two case studies; one case study in Chapter 5 on the Sourcing function and a second in Chapter 6 that addresses the logistics function. The Case studies are included in an attached Word document. It is recommended you print out a copy of this to have while answering each question. You may also read these at the end of chapters 6 and 7 in your textbook (Sanders). As this is a two-week assignment, use your best instincts how to “completely answer” each question. Your instructor will be looking for depth of insight, excellence in research, and highly professional writing.
