17H00 (ESAE) - SCM basics; Procurement motivation & Case Study
(Coordinated by Johan Magnusson, UG-SE)


The lifecycle of enterprise systems. Taking a starting point with the contextualization, the focus will be on the lifecycle of enterprise systems, from procurement to integration. Attention will be directed towards the current developments in the enterprise software industry and the vast new opportunities and threats it brings to business. A case on enterprise software selection and procurement will be presented, where the students will be asked to work hands on with the implementation of a SCM strategy through IT.



Project Development

(Coordinated by Amaia Lusa, UPC-ES)

A project can be defined as a set of activities. Each activity needs a certain amount of time (that can be variable or even stochastic) and requires different type and quantity of resources (tools, personnel, money, etc.). Also, usually there are additional constraints that affect the scheduling of the activities, as precedence constraints (for example, an activity cannot start until another one has finished), time constraints (do not start or finish before or later than a certain date) and simultaneously constraints (activities that cannot be done at the same time). Different tools for project scheduling will be introduced: graph representation of time and precedence constraints; Gantt chart and load curves; and heuristic, meta-heuristics and exact algorithms for project scheduling considering different evaluation criteria.
