In preparation for this discussion, and after you have read the assigned textbook readings, review the Basic Supply Chain diagram.
Next, consider that one of the most important aspects of your daily life is relying on products that have been moved through the supply chain. Keeping in mind the products that you rely on the most, select a product you would like to use to explore the supply chain.
Please choose your product thoughtfully, as you will not be able to switch after you have made your choice. You will use this product to explore the supply chain for the duration of the course.
In your initial post, address the following:
- What product would you like to use to explore the supply chain?
- Why did you select that specific product? Explain.
In your responses to your peers, offer any initial comments or thoughts you may have regarding their product selection and their explanation of why they selected the product. For example, discuss whether you have had a similar experience with the product selected by your peer. Was there anything your peer did not mention about the product that you would like to point out?
