The Official Master of Logistics and Operations Management taught by ENAE Business School provides you with the knowledge and tools necessary for optimum project management and control of the production, logistics and purchasing departments. External Double Degree: ENAE + Partner University (University of Murcia).
With the contents of this Master the student will have the opportunity to learn the main techniques and tools for proper management of the flow of materials and associated information, covering the areas of production, logistics, purchasing and project management.
Adequate management of the company's operations mainly results in:
Growing pressure on profit margins is forcing companies to search relentlessly (and also with rapid results) for these cost reductions.
The indispensable condition of an orderly company from the point of view of its operations is the correct planning of its materials, of its manufactured products and, where appropriate, of its projects to be carried out. For this reason, this planning (procurement, production, etc.) has an outstanding presence in the Master in Global Supply Chain Management. Without this planning, the client will perceive continuous service failures, with the consequent loss of image and credibility on irreparable occasions
Companies need production and sourcing planners who are cost-oriented, have training and knowledge of internal organizational operations.
Aimed at professionals from companies who need to update their knowledge and acquire new skills and production strategies through the master's degree in logistics, and to recent university graduates who wish to specialize in this area.
The recommended admissions profile required for the Master in Global Supply Chain Management in terms of preferred academic qualifications is as follows:
In addition to the preferential degrees mentioned above, professionals with sufficient qualifications for access to master's degree courses may apply who, at the beginning or after a recognised professional career, wish to incorporate the latest advances in studies on the management of the flow of materials and their associated information, covering the areas of production, logistics, purchasing and project management
The Master is taught using a blended learning methodology which combines online and classroom training:
Online training is carried out through our virtual campus. Students can take part interactively and dynamically, combining the resolution of practical cases and notes review, with multimedia content, videoconferences and participation in forums.
During this period, personal meetings are organised with the teaching staff and the rest of members of the group. The teachers in charge of the programme will develop theoretical/practical sessions, having the participants the opportunity to exchange experiences and put into practice the knowledge acquired, as well as expand their network along with the rest of ENAE students. Visits to companies are also carried out.
The residential period will take place between the months of February/March during 3 intensive weeks of classes at ENAE Business School with morning and afternoon schedule.
In this course the student will understand the evolution from classic visions of the supply chain (see in isolation the warehouse, transport, etc.) to the winning tendencies of managing the whole chain in an integral way to give better service to the client at competitive costs.
You will also see the relationships that are established between those responsible for the supply chain with other functions of the company (areas of Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, etc.).
There are eight relevant business processes in the supply chain:
However, from the viewpoint of the objectives of this course, the one that has the greatest impact on decisions throughout the Supply Chain is Demand Planning Management, also currently called Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP).
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the techniques that allow them to place orders with the necessary suppliers at the right time and in the right quantity for the correct functioning of the company, guaranteeing a correct level of service to the customer and/or to the production plants in the case of raw material for producing companies. Likewise, the student will learn ways of classifying inventories that allow him to manage each group of materials individually, according to their rotation, economic valuation, etc. in order to reduce costs. In this course we will also see a practical methodology for conducting inventories and physical counts, guidelines to be taken into account and analysis of possible differences that we might have in our stock.
The purpose of this course is to introduce the participant to Production Planning processes from a strategic level to an operational level. It develops how to determine what the market expects of our company and make it compatible with our productive reality, with the objective of fulfilling with our clients, thus defining a correct Service Policy.
A fundamental element in any planning is to know how to manage our production capacity and also establish improvements in the physical distribution of equipment in our plant and "lay-out" to increase this capacity. To this end, this course will see tools and knowledge to optimise resources (material and human) and maximise results, as well as identify and manage the "feared" bottlenecks.
The purpose of this course is to help the participant to develop a decision-making culture in the area of Production based on the contribution of value and improvement of cost. Based on an understanding of the Company's Strategic Objectives, we must define and develop those Production Indicators that guide us in decision making, that anticipate at all times the results we are going to obtain and that are also aligned with these Company's Strategic Objectives
The development of a strategy oriented towards Improvement and Innovation requires contextualising in the way in which the operational techniques of Internal Logistics and Warehouse Management can contribute to this strategy.
This problem can be addressed from the principles of Supply Chain Management (Lean Logistics, CPFR, VMI ...) and associated techniques that is a systemic approach to analysis and improvement of the flow of materials applied to intra-logistics and warehouse management.
In the current environment, cost management is an essential aspect for the company, if it is oriented to efficiency and the maximisation of activities that provide value to the client.
The decisions in the company are made taking into account the various areas of the same: technical, financial, commercial, strategic, etc. Although the final decision combines these different approaches, the decision-making process improves if the financial aspect is clear, that is, if the impact that each alternative can have on the income statement can be estimated.
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the world of transport, so that they are able to identify their real transport needs, deal with them separately, and once this has been achieved, know how to address the right companies in this changing market in order to solve their perspectives. They must be able to handle the legislation and know the basic principles of the contractual relationship between carrier and shipper, the basic documents necessary to perfect the contract, as well as the requirements to be met by transport companies.
The solidity and integration of the information systems determine part of the weapons available in the competition between companies. The importance of information systems in business management and more specifically in supply chain management is now beyond doubt.
Relationships with external actors (customers, suppliers and even consumers) have become a differentiating strategy in supply chain competition. Information systems to support these relationships both in their operational aspects and in the support of electronic liaisonsare facilitators of this competitive advantage.
This course is focused on improving competitiveness and efficiency by taking equal advantage the Mission, Vision and Values of organizations as well as the alignment of strategic objectives-direction of projects-persons in its following aspects:
1.- Efficient project management for organisations that work or should work for projects, ranging from the implementation of strategic projects to the management of projects under contracts, improvement projects, outsourcing, etc.
2.- Of the staff, because they are "ultimately responsible for the implementation of these strategic objectives through the management of their associated projects", based on their development and motivation, their managerial and interpersonal skills, etc.
The Business Management course introduces participants to the general scope of the company, acquiring knowledge of the different areas of the company, such as Marketing Management or Human Resource Management. Based on the premise that the company is a whole, and not individual independent links, knowing, and more importantly, understanding the work of other departments, is essential when it comes to the proper functioning and development of any organisation.
