What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

This paper covers the critical aspects of supply chain resilience and the management of disruptions preventing goods to be delivered when and where they are needed by businesses and people. In particular, it aims to:

  • Demonstrate the importance and value of supply chain resilience;
  • Discuss the fundamental practices and strategies enhancing supply chain resilience;
  • Take a systemic approach and demonstrate the role of a range of key stakeholders in the building of supply chain resilience (transport users, logistics service providers, seaports, policy makers, etc.);
  • Enhance students' decision making skills in relation to the building of supply chain resilience and the management of disruptions in the flow of goods.

How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

This paper is offered in FLEXI (synchronous) mode. Students can choose to attend the face-to-face or the online classes. Interactive sessions involve group discussions, student presentations, guest speakers, and field visits. For those taking the paper online, please note that class activities, class discussions, and class presentations require students to be online on Wednesdays from 9am to 12pm.

Students are expected to do the weekly readings before attending classes in order to optimise the quality of learning and the discussions. The readings will be available on Perusall and students will be expected to comment on the uploaded documents.

The use of generative AI tools (like ChatGPT) are allowed in this paper, but we insist that it be used honestly and responsibly. That means:

  • The use of any AI tools must be acknowledged at the end of an assignment. The acknowledgement should explain what the tool was used for and the prompts used. Failure to do so would be regarded as academic dishonesty.
  • Generative AI tools are known to be inaccurate at times, reference poorly, and provide a biased view depending on the training data. The student is ultimately responsible for the veracity of all work submitted. So do not accept anything at face value. Use these tools as a starting point (like you would a Google search or Wikipedia page) not as the final answer.
  • Each student must show that they have mastered the learning outcomes of this paper. If an assignment is primarily the product of artificial intelligence, without much evidence of human intelligence, then it will not be marked.
