The supply chain management minor provides students with the knowledge to assist in developing and implementing efficient supplier systems in order to maximize customer value. Supply chain management is the coordination of the associated processes required both within a business, as well as across businesses and suppliers, to deliver products and services–from raw materials to customer delivery. The minor provides a background in areas commonly needed to support supply chain management, including business strategy, information systems, lean/quality management, customer service, purchasing, negotiations, contracts, forecasting, inventory management, logistics, and project management. Completion of this minor provides students with Lean Six-Sigma Yellow Belt body of knowledge.
