Course description

Supply Chain Management

Unlike many other industries, construction has been slow to see the benefits of supply chain management. The industry has many problems, most of which are well known; proactive supply chain management has the potential to address a number of these issues.

The course considers the principles and practice of supply chain management. The focus is on the use of supply chain management with the JCT suite of contracts. It considers alternative procurement methods and provides a range of tools and techniques which will build value to all contractors at each stage of a project. The use of such tools and techniques will become an essential part of all contractor’s quality management.

The relationship between project management and supply chain management is considered, and practical examples of successful supply chain management are used throughout the course, including discussion about how and when to start, together with consideration about pricing. It is also important to continually improve and develop procurement staff, and examples of the process and the benefits are included in the course.
