- There were a lot of questions on the exam which resulted in that I had no chance to answer everything. » (No, not at all)
- The subject is very interesting, however I think that the teaching methods are not the most suitable. Use cases instead of seminars. Or make the seminars more interactive!» (To some extent)
- The exam was well prepared and matched very closely on what has been discussed at the lectures (föreläsningarna endast dock!).» (Yes, definitely)
- What I felt was difficult to understand with the goals was how this course was conneted to previous courses and how this one was different.» (Yes, definitely)

- Often the lectures gets off track, making it hard to follow and get the point of the lecture.» (Small extent)
- The lecturers generally had problems getting the knowledge out to the students, in my opinion. First after reading other materials and thinking about it did I understand what was actually the message at the lecture. To me, this lack of teaching skills are a great drawback in the course.» (Small extent)
- Dan"s lectures were helpful, Kenth"s lectures were at times hard to follow, especialy since the slides provided only contained pictures from the book no explenations or any guidance.» (Some extent)
- I know that personal feedback on the teachers are not allowed, but I can say that one of three main course "leaders" have been good. The other two was pathetic!» (Some extent)

- The book was HORRIBLE!! The entire part aout tariff and contract was even not correct! How can we use a book that have so many "wrongs" in it? I think that"s a shame!! Kent"s book is not good at all!» (?)
- The translations from swe to eng in this book have to be looked over. It is hard to follow but at least I am swedish so I understand the "swinglish" but I can imagine that it is very hard for some exchange students.» (Small extent)
- I did not think the book was very good. It was very confusing and had poor language. There are faults in the facts at the contract and tariff section. I didn"t feel like it provided a nuanced picture of the subjects.» (Some extent)

- Most of the articles are useful except some of them such as supply chain integration the role of logistics service providers (Nathalie et al, 2009). If the article is not very important, it is better not to list it in the seminar instruction and students can find extra information on web if they want.» (Some extent)
- The best learning aids, but there are too many. » (Large extent)
- some of them were good, some where not. But this was mainly what I read through the course. » (Large extent)

- It is only a waste of time this project. It is not stated in a good way what is expected of the students and the assignment is so unclear. plenty says this! even last years students.» (Small extent)
- Never understood the task...maybe better to have harvard cases instead.» (Small extent)
- A lot of time and effort are spent on the case assignment but nothing specific is related to it in the exam. And the intruction of the case is not clear so it is hard to start it. Furthermore, Pingpong always breaks down.» (Small extent)
- The case was a failure in the way that it became writing just for the sake of it. The assignment was unclear and the way it was open for us to pick topic and company by ourselves just made it more unclear what it really did for the learning. The assignment was a good idea, but failed in the execution due to lack of guidelines. It was also unclear what purpose the case assignment had in the course.» (Small extent)
- The case assignment"s purpoose was very unclear and confusing. The support and feedback did not provide any help.» (Small extent)
- I didn"t see the relation of the case to the course. The aim of the case was very hard to grasp. 80% of time and energy went to understand what is expected. This means that only 20% was efficient learning.» (Small extent)
- This was the most terrible case I"ve ever done during my time at Chalmers. The tutor was acting very unprofessional and there were NO goals or instructions of what the case was about. I"m really mad at this case assignment. Very disappointed at the tutor!!» (Small extent)

- It is just that this whole period with the other course have been very full.» (Fair)
- Considering how much time and effort that was spent on writing for the seminars it should have been more rewarding to us students. For example, more extra points or giving a grade 3 in the course, as in the Production Flow course we had parallel.» (Fair)
- to much time spent on a worthless case.» (Adequate)

- I"m very disappointed of many parts of this course which unfortunately makes the total impression pretty bad. The teachers, except the one leading the course, was not good at all. the book was bad and the book"s owner were not very good at presenting either. Very bad slides!!!! The case assignment was terrible. The worst I"ve ever made. The tutor was very rude and mean, he had NO clue about how to get good feedback.» (?)
- Interesting subjects but not the right way to teach it. Have fixed cases instead where it is easy to spot good or bad improvements/investments. Now it all was jut a blur and that"s a shame because it is a very interesting subject.» (Poor)
- It was throughout the course unclear what the course was really about. It seemed to be repetition of the content in the Freight Transport Systems course and some basic economy from other previous courses. Would not recommend.» (Poor)
- Please explain why this course is more important compared to the other courses in the Supply Chain program. It feel that many things has been discussed in earlier courses in the program. Except for the project the course is rather nice!» (Adequate)

21. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Seminars but which can give more points to exam.»
- The seminars»
- The seminars, with the a different content for some of them.»
- The case assignment was very good. I learned a lot from that. Also, the articles were really interesting. Many of the lectures were very interesting. This is a really interesting course, however, the goal of the course is somewhat hard to grasp. »
- Seminars had good value for me.»
- Dan"s entusiasm! And the seminars!»
- Seminars»

22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The feedback from Joakim was good but could be said in a more polite way.»
- remove project!»
- The book EOS, the case.»
- I don´,t understand why there is such a big focus on the pricing and cost at the exam when there is not in the lectures. If cost/pricing is so important you should either have calculating lectures or a seminar about it.»
- Clearer instructions to the case.»
- It was díffuícult to grasp the case assignment. A more substantial introduction would have been preferable.»
- Case assignment should be removed if it can"t be made clearer, like a proper case solving created by the examiner.»
- Earlier introduction of the case assignment. Grade the group assignment higher.»
- The case and course book.»
- The workload was high this semester due to seminars in both courses. However, it is a good way of learning. I would prefer smaller groups so that discussions would be more relaxed, as I think it is easier to learn in that environment. Also, the pricing lectures could have been more interactive. They didn"t give that much. »
- The case should be restructured so it would have a clearer aim and has a better connection with the course topics.»
- THE CASE & the other two teachers!!!»
- The case, it was difficult to understand what to do and the "help" and feedback wasn"t very nice! »

23. Additional comments

- The exam questions were too big!!!! »
- I was exited when I read the course PM, but was very disappointed after. It needs to be more clear what the course is about.»
- The workload is very high at least for me. Some students who did their bachlor in industry economy in Chalmers may feel it easy since some articles they had read several times before. Three lectures (including another course) were cancelled in the second week of the quater and all the lectures have to be delayed in the following weeks including the case instruction which delay the schedule of starting the case assignment. The workload were concentrated in the following one or two weeks. There was one week that almost everyday had a deadline and seminar that I was a bit overwhelmed. The tight schedule had an impact on my study effect directly. »
- This course should not be compulsory elective in its current state, since it in my opinion is of very low quality. It"s a shame that those students who are going abroad and need to take their compulsory elective courses during the spring. »
- -The case assignment should be restructured, in a way that the topics asked to be more clear. -The book contains some points with "blurry" (not so clear) rationing/explanation. »
- A very interesting course. »
- unfortunately very disappointed. I wasn"t seeing the course potential until I started to study for the exam and when I started to understand what has been going on for the past 7 weeks. It took very long time to see what we were doing. And I have to say that the case assignment made me very disappointed. I haven"t learn anything!»
