Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology(KAIST) による Supply Chain Management: A Learning Perspective の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



As a human being, we all consume products and/or services all the time. This morning you got up and ate your breakfast, e.g., eggs, milk, bread, fresh fruits, and the like. After the breakfast, you drove your car to work or school. At your office, you used your computer, perhaps equipped with 27” LCD monitor. During your break, you drank a cup of coffee and played with your iPhone. So on and so forth. You probably take it for granted that you can enjoy all of these products. But if you take a closer look at how each of these products can be made and eventually delivered to you, you will realize that each one of these is no short of miracle. For example, which fruit do you like? Consider fresh strawberries. In order for the strawberries to be on your breakfast table, there must be numerous functions, activities, transactions, and people involved in planting, cultivating, delivering, and consuming strawberries. Moreover, all of these functions, activities, transactions, and people are connected as an integral chain, through which physical products like strawberries themselves and virtual elements such as information and communication flow back and forth constantly. By grouping related functions or activities, we have a supply chain, comprised of four primary functions such as supplier, manufacturer, distributor, and finally consumer. A supply chain is essentially a value chain. For the society or economy as a whole, the goal is to maximize value, i.e., to create satisfactory value without spending too much. In order to create the maximum value for the strawberry supply chain, every participant in the chain must carry out its function efficiently. In addition, all of the members must coordinate with each other effectively in order to ensure value maximization. We have to face the same issues for almost all the products and services we take for granted in our everyday life, e.g., cars, hamburgers, haircuts, surgeries, movies, banks, restaurants, and you name it! In this course, we want to understand fundamental principles of value creation for the consumers or the market. We try to answer questions like how the product or service is made, how the value-creating activities or functions are coordinated, who should play what leadership roles in realizing all these, and so on. As our course title hints, we approach all of these issues from a learning perspective, which is dynamic in nature and emphasizes long-term capability building rather than short-term symptomatic problem solving....



This course contains all important concepts to know in SCM.i hope this course makes a foundation to apply in your work . Thanks to Our Mr. Kim who taught us in a very simple way and very elaboratey.

It is a very good course where students get to learn about supply chain management. People who are looking for deeper knowledge about SCM can opt this course. My only suggestion to this course is that they need to improve the quality of the video(not the content) and increase the difficulty level of the exams.

At first, this was interesting. However, I already have some background knowledge on SCM and started to find the lectures uninteresting. So I went ahead and completed the last 4 quizzes; I easily passed each one on the first try. I was hoping I would learn more from this.

by Jonathan G


Good course, A lot of what was being taught is self-explanatory. A lot of the modules were redundant. You don't need 10 weeks to explain something that can take a much shorter period of time.

by Saleh M A


Good course materials and easygoing quizzes. But, the instructor's pronunciation was too much annoying. Also, slides were contained too much handwritten topics which was too disturbing.

by Valdric L


Lecturer is downright boring and not engaging.

Could had used more real-world companies as examples for teaching, including pictures, but it's the same bland slides again and again.

by Michelle P T H


The course material could be leaner and more focused. At times I lost myself in between the lectures as the material was too confusing.

by Rahul S M


Good course for beginners in the area of OSCM. Thanks Prof. Bowon Kim (Instructor) for designing the course.

by Breno J


Conceitos muito simples e leves. POderiam ser mais aprofundados com leituras e exercìcios menos teóricos.

by Hyeong-bae K


it is good lecture to learn SCM in other concepts

Slow, never to the point, repetitive, presentation and communication outdated. This class is a text high schooler student's nightmare almost to the point to be an homage to the boring economic class at the beginning of " Ferris Bueller's Day Off "

by Rebecca H


Difficult to understand the professor, and slides were hard to read

by Patrick E


Not as detailed or practical as I hoped for.
