Supply chain operation, Operation Management

Please diagram a supply chain.  I prefer that you diagram the supply chain of your company.  However, some of you may wish to select another supply chain with which you are familiar or research a supply chain that you would like to learn about.

Create your diagram in Powerpoint.  Please feel free to modify the example templatein Powerpoint provided in the lecture presentation.  Use this approach or modify as appropriate to your supply chain.  Make an effort to present a "picture" of the supply chain that could be used to communicate with the colleagues at your company about an issue of importance in SCM at your firm.

In the same Powerpoint file (on a separate slide or two), briefly describe the supply chain that you are diagramming and present one significant strategic challenge that the supply chain is facing.  Write a minimum of 300 words.  Clearly state the situation, give examples, facts, statistics, and/or quotes to aid the reader.  Cite the text book, lecture content, or an outside reference.  Use proper grammar and spelling.  Be sure to demonstrate that you understand and can apply the concepts from the course content.

Rename the file to begin with your first and last name such as, "George Washington - Supply Chain Diagram". Upload this diagram as your assignment submission to the assignment item on Blackboard.
