BUSI 1150 E-Logistics & International SCM
Portfolio (Part 1: Reflective Report)
The first part of the portfolio is to report the engagement progress and what have learnt from the supply chain simulation game. You are asked to summarize your engagement in the simulation game and to summarize the key points what you have learnt from the simulation game. In the reflective report, you should include as many evidence as possible to reflect your engagement.
The link for the simulation game is: https://forio.com/simulate/mbean/near-beer-game/run/#p=page0
You are expected to play the game at least twice to make sure you can do some comparative study in the reflective report. Please make sure you make screenshots and make any possible records of the game because the website will keep no records of the game.
Portfolio (Part 2: Research Report)
The second part of the portfolio is to analyze the strategies and tools could be used to mitigate the supply chain risks and uncertainties, and to achieve better supply chain performance. You could use any case material to support your analysis. The case material could be the simulation game, any cases discussed in class or you find it interesting in other sources, or any news reported in recent media.
The case used for this coursework is a piece of news “Aerospace manufacturers head to Singapore innovation hub”, published on 10th February 2014 by the Financial Times. You can find the news on the following link, http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/fc571026-8501-11e3-8968-00144feab7de.html#ixzz2tgNdDIu7.
In the research report, you need to target these three questions, but you always could explore more. And you need to use references to support your arguments.
- What factors drive Rolls-Royce to choose Singapore as its manufacturing location for making sophisticated engines and parts?
- What potential challenges/risks should be considered in order to improve Rolls-Royce’s international supply chain performance?
- What recommendations you would like to propose to Rolls-Royce to handle the potential challenges/risks in Rolls-Royce’s international supply chain?
