Supply Chain & Production Management

Supply Chain & Production Management deals with the entire scope of value chains. This includes the efficient design of both supply chains and intra-company production processes.

Supply Chain & Production Management is a specialisation in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Management degree programme.

“As part of the Supply Chain Management major, I was able to learn what it means to consider a value chain from the perspective of an entire company. As a result, I now see process problems from different perspectives. With the tools I gained on the programme, today I can develop solutions that are comprehensively and sustainably effective.”

Globalisation has long since arrived in Switzerland.

The successful management of supply chains is more important than ever. In a globalised world, specialist knowledge of transport, information technology and organisation are in high demand across the globe. Only this way can it be guaranteed that delivered components and services satisfy the demands for quality, price and adherence to delivery dates.

The second part of the major deals with intra-company production processes. This involves designing these processes in the most structured and efficient way possible. In high-wage Switzerland, an automated and productivity-driven production is often the main focus. Digitalisation, also known as Industry 4.0 in the industrial environment, helps open up the potential for optimisation.
