First, select one of the following organizations to focus on for your final project:

  • Caterpillar (CAT)
  • Walmart (WMT)
  • Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT)

Next, provide the following information about your organization:

  • A description of the organization’s goals for their supply chain management
  • A brief overview of their current distribution channels (i.e., the channels through which goods or services get to the customer); include virtual supply chains if they use any

  • A description of the relationship between the logistics department and the supply chain management department

Use the organization’s website to locate this information.

For additional details, please refer to the Journal Guidelines and Rubric document.
