Course structure and content

12. How do you perceive the following parts of the course? Please give some brief comments if you rank any part as less than good.


- Case Sandvik was a disaster !!! The lack of serious in its preparation by logistema is clear. It could be a good case, even very good, but the data have to be sure. Regarding the lectures on Purchasing and supply management, we had the feeling that the teacher was only reading the book. So, clearly, the teacher was bored and boring. The slides were very poor in spite of a very good book. What a waste of time to attend these classes. The reading of the book is widely more useful.»
- Sanvdik"s people should have looked at the data before handdling it.»
- Strategic Sourcing: I didn"t think that I learn useful knowledge from this seminar. SCM: I just rush for the assignment and didn"t feel learn anything from it. Case Sandvik: It is keeping on change over time and I didn"t find that I learned much from the time-consuming case work eventually. Seminar Construction: I really appreciate Lars and Anna send us their comments to our paper and give us valuable suggestions for improvements. Lecture: Prof. Stig gave a really interesting and valuable lecture. »
- About Sandvik case is that it is a very good idea, interesting project but managed not in a best way in terms of continuous changes in data and so on. If it would be prepared better I would give the highest rate to it. About SKF it was interesting excursion, however exam"s questions was not reflecting this visit.»
- The parts connected to the "red book" could have been better. Gadde had more details which made me feel his part was more important.»
- I didn"t see the goal for sandvik case,because Ididn"t get the right answer,just some comments. also for skf it was n"t related to SCM,mostly mechanical engineering and with out any text or some thing to read,I lost one question in exam because I didn"t get clearly what the man in skf had told us!»
- SCM Construction seminar should be divided into 2 different groups. No good to have all 12 groups present in the same group»

- It should be the teachers, not the fellow students lecturing the international students about how to write an essay. And that copy paste is forbidden. I had to spend half a day explaining to a chinese student!» (Rather well)

- Maybe a bit too patchy.» (Adequate)
- Actually, I didn"t get enough time to think and work on the assignments very well. My groups always rush to handin the assignments all the time. » (High)
- The workload was different from weeks when it was too high and rather not in some weeks. Perhaps more smooth schedule can be made. However it reflect the more natural working process in companies so the work process was done all right.» (High)
- I think the group works could have been better planed in time. But it was good to have them to be able to get to know the classmates.» (High)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- SC Game»
- the termpaper»
- Everythingh which is not in the next box. »
- That seminars groups contain both international and swedish students.»
- SCM Game, Site Visit, Term Paper, Lectures»
- LFE case, sandik case, construction seminars.»
- The group hand ins and the mixed groups. »
- some kind of case study but a bit more organised.»
- The supply chain game and the individual term paper. »
- The supply chain game, Ola"s lectures, LFE case, term paper»
- Supply chain game. The construction part but with a better support and smaller presentation groups (not all groups presenting in front of everyone). The term paper was nice, but I want more time for supervision.»
- scm game and red book,also group working.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Construction seminars»
- Sandvik case much be much better coordinated»
- Case Sandvik and lectures on Purchasing and supply management.»
- Sandvik case»
- SCM Seminar»
- Sandvik must be better structured though.»
- The Sandvik case was rather unclear. It could have been better structured. »
- SKF visit because it explains more about the processes they carry out and less emphasize on SCM aspect. »
- Case Sandvik should have been better prepared before handing out the assignment to students.»
- The Sandvik case could have been better organized from the beginning so it can be kept but it needs a better coordination.»
- The Sandvik case, didn"t learn that much and it wasn"t very well organized. Maybe Gaddes book is too old? »
- better coordination of the different case studies»
- some guest lectures,becuse they realy didn"t know what is SCM and just intended to introduce their company!»
- Maybe more lectures or group assignmentfor the last 3 weeks of the quarter because I spent a lot of time working alone and reading books and that was not very exciting!»

18. Additional comments

- It could be very useful to hang more old exams in the homepage.»
- The ideas of Case Sandvik and Strategic sourcing are good, but more details should be given in the seminar and finally the consultants should also explain in details (eg. give a lecture) how they will solve the case in real business world.»
- The course did not offer very much new to the former I students. It could maybe be reworked to offer the former I students more new stuff. The part about Agile was new. The course was very interesting and offered a good overview and a way of thinking that is relevant to the course. »
- I think one question in exam was in red book that hadn"t been mentioned in lectures and power point hand out(question 6).»
