About this Event

INTRODUCTION

Today, customers are becoming more and more demanding, asking for faster delivery, more innovative products, lower cost and top quality. Furthermore, as companies over time have increased their degree of outsourcing and globalized their supplier bases, company success is increasingly becoming dependent on the success of supply chain partners. Since the supply chain has implications across most corporate functions, it is essential for all purchasing staff to have comprehensive knowledge about the subject.

This is a course program in industrial purchasing. The basic purpose of the class is to convey understanding of the strategy and policies inherent in supply management, as well as descriptive views of the purchasing cycle, functions and procedures.
