Building an Integrated Supply Chain Network
Prepare a comprehensive report for addressing opportunities for increased integration across a supply chain network.
Section 1: Analysis of the status quo—Provide a description of the functional components of the existing supply chain network and an assessment of the current levels of integration.
Section 2: For each functional component, provide a critical analysis of the opportunities for increased integration, the enabling strategies to accomplish that integration, the anticipated benefits and the risks associated with implementing these strategies.
Section 3: Recommendations and conclusions—Write a comprehensive report that proposes strategies for addressing two different functional components that could be improved for efficiency. Include a reflection on whether the enabling strategies would be relevant for your organisation or one with which you are familiar.
