Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
IMPORTANT NOTICE: In the academic year 2022/23 (as in 21/22) this subject will be taught online Subjects SCM I and SCM II have been selected in the "1ª Convocatoria de Aprendizaje Activo en Docencia Digital (Active Learning in Digital Education) (Vicerrectorado de Estrategia y Educación Digital)", thus they will be taught entirely online (except the midterm tests and the final exam), through platforms such as BBC and/or Engageli. Thus, students enrolling in any of these elective courses must regularly attend the (online) sessions, and adhere to an active metholodoly, involving continuous individual and group work, as preparation and complement of the online sessions. Given the innovative and exploratory nature of this call ("Convocatoria"), by enrolling in these elective courses students accept that the (anonimized) results of these courses (academic results, surveys, experiences...) might be used for research and/or learning methodology development purposes, and eventually disseminated (e.g. in Education conferences, journals,...) 1 Introduction to supply chain management (SCM). ¿Lean¿ approaches 1.1 From artisans to lean enterprise 1.2 SCM and lean manufacturing 1.3 TPM 1.4 JIT 1.5 Organizational behaviour and labour organization 2 Assembly Lines and Cellular manufacturing 2.1 Mono/ multi product lines 2.2 Cellular manufacturing.

Learning activities and methodology
Lectures, exercises, practical sessions in laboratory with cases and assignments to the carried out by the students and discussed in the sessions, readinggs assigned by the instructor. The students must assist to sessions of theory and practice and also must take practices with * Case analysis * Working in groups All the activities could be place in live or on line, using the "aula global" tools, depend of the situation. Please see "Important Notice" in "Program": In the academic year 2021/22 they will take place online (except the midterm tests and the final exam)
