There are 4 modules in this course

Supply Chains are made up of a network of companies from the initial raw materials to the ultimate consumer of the finished product. Within this network of companies, there are three ongoing flows: products, information, and finances. To properly understand the supply chain and manage it, you need to understand all of the flows. The first of five courses in this Specialization will focus on the flow of products, information, and finances in the Supply Chain. This module will cover not only the introduction of the course but also the overall product flow goals that supply chain executives are trying to accomplish when building a supply chain.
