HND Supply Chain Management<br />- GG2J 16

Supply Chain Management is the management and control of all materials and information in the logistics process from the acquisition of raw materials to delivery to the end-user.

The SQA HND Supply Chain Management can be studied in the context of either the manufacturing industry or the non-manufacturing industry. In this SQA HND, the focus will be on supply chain manufacturing as it relates to the manufacturing industry, eg car manufacturing.

The globalisation of trade and business means that the study of an SQA HND in Supply Chain Management (Manufacturing) can lead to a fulfilling career. It will give you a working knowledge of the supply chain and the operational side of business, vital to someone working in a fast-moving industry. You will also develop the good interpersonal skills needed to work with people at all levels in a company.

Supply Chain Management is also known as logistics.
