Consider a world where things are supplied to customers before they even place a purchase. Where the supply chain can be purchased as a service and billed based on how much it is used. Without the assistance of humans, performance management systems can recognize hazards and adjust supply chain parameters. This isn’t the plot of an Arthur C. Clarke science-fiction novel, but rather a developing ecosystem powered by a slew of new technology. This paradigm shift, also known as Supply Chain 4.0, will overhaul supply chain management and consumer expectations – and will drastically alter our future jobs.
Hello, and welcome to the new normal.
The pace of digital transformation has only accelerated after the COVID-19 outbreak exposed fundamental weaknesses in global supply networks. As a result, intelligent supply networks that are nimble, elastic, and transparent have emerged.
Digital supply chains have the ability to entirely automate digital processes and customer solutions by leveraging new technologies such as blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
However, redesigning supply networks necessitates the development of new skills within the workforce. This is the ideal time for you to comprehend key concepts in order to bridge potential skill gaps.
This training will prepare you for the digital age.
The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) recently introduced a new degree program, the Bachelor of Science with Honours in Digital Supply Chain, to prepare students for the challenges ahead (DSC).
It focuses on teaching multidisciplinary knowledge in Infocomm Technology (ICT), Engineering, and Supply Chain Management as a 3-year direct honors degree. This is in reaction to Industry 4.0’s digital transformation and national digitalization programs.
Our modules are meticulously planned to provide students with cutting-edge skill sets. Emerging technologies will enable the next wave of opportunities as digitalization transforms existing jobs and generates new ones. To fully realize the industry’s potential, the necessary capabilities will be required to create revolutionary supply chain business and operational models.
Industry tours are another important component of the program since they allow students to immerse themselves in real-world settings and see how the industry is changing. This helps undergraduates to gain a deeper understanding of supply chains and logistical operations, as well as work on real-world challenges and devise novel solutions.
The curriculum serves as a springboard for a variety of employment options for graduates. They could, for example, work as a supply chain management for a manufacturing or logistics company, or as a procurement manager for an e-commerce or retail company.
The program’s forward-thinking curriculum, in particular, will go beyond teaching domain-specific technical skills. One of the main goals is to provide students with the tools they need to advance their careers, including critical and creative thinking, while also creating a growth mindset for lifelong learning.
The journey, however, does not have to finish with a Bachelor’s degree. Students can pursue a postgraduate Master’s degree or Ph.D. in related subjects including supply chain management, business analytics, operations management, software engineering, Infocomm technology, engineering management, and so on after graduation.
The degree’s emphasis on logistics and supply chain operations and management may appeal to Gen Zers interested in learning more about e-commerce or perhaps starting their own online business.
You’ll be inspired to cultivate an entrepreneurial attitude. Reviews with industry specialists are undertaken on a regular basis to ensure that the curriculum remains relevant to market expectations.
