Find an article or paper addressing Supply Chain Risk Management and summarize it for your peers.  Your summary should not be more than a paragraph (I will mark it down if it is unnecessarily long and wordy with grammatical errors or just copied from its source). Be certain to include your link (in APA style format). Review a couple of other learner posts as well and comment appropriately. The goal of this week is to inform you on Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM). I recommend you look at  Supply Chain Management Review online magazine. They have some good articles!

Assignment

 

Expectations: After reviewing the Project information, the group should evaluate the Weaknesses listed and then identify the Risks, Threats, and Countermeasures.

Step #1: using the Group Discussion board, agree on on how members will participate in completing the assignment. The group should agree on one person to lead the group, monitor the discussion threads and encourage group members to post information.

Step #2: Each member identifies 4 or more Weaknesses (as found in the Project information) he/she would like to analyze and post that information to the “Weakness” Discussion thread. NO other student should use Weaknesses already identified by another student – the earlier you post, the better.   Feel free to add more Weaknesses as they are found BUT they must be related to the information provided in the Project information document – do not make up weaknesses that are not addressed in the Project information document.

Step #3:  Each member uses the Weaknesses he/she selected and posts Threats (that can exploit the Weaknesses). Other members of the team should look for additional threats. Group members should discuss and update the Threats column on the Project worksheet.

Step #4: Each member uses the Weaknesses/Threats he/she selected and posts Risks (that can generate loss should the Threat exploit the Weakness). Other members of the team should look for additional Risks. Group members should discuss and update the Risks column on the Project worksheet.

Step #5: Each member uses the Weaknesses/Threats/Risks he/she selected and posts Countermeasures (that can mitigate the Risks). Other members of the team should look for additional Countermeasures.  Group members should discuss and update the Countermeasures column on the Project worksheet.

Question: 1 How has Webcor used technology to support project management in the construction field?

Question: 2 List the main lessons IT managers can learn from Webcor Builder about the successful adoption of new technologies?

Question: 3 Webcor bought an application called PlanGrid to markup construction blueprints on iPads. PlanGrid can be used when the workers are offline and later syncs up with files on the box platform. Webcor frequently follows this approach of buying applications and then building application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect these programs to its main enterprise systems. What are the Advantages of this IT development process?

Question: 4 What obstacles do companies face when developing customized IT systems themselves? Under what circumstances does it make sense?

Question: 5 How might developing whole IT systems themselves rather than adopting already developed solutions and integrating them using APIs, changes Webcor’s ability to encourage IT adoption?
