Recent new thinking about chain systems and supply chains provides important insights into issues of the integration of chains. This unit explores, among other things, the work of Andrew Cox on power relationships in supply chains, the notion of virtual supply chains and the networked economy in the work of Reddy and Reddy and others. The unit also uses one or a number of purpose-designed, objectanimated, interactive simulation packages to demonstrate the drivers of integration and the dynamic determinants of capacity in supply chains. It also uses real-world case studies to demonstrate a range of important principles of integration.
