The obstacles to good supply chain management are described in the course materials and other resources. 

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

The obstacles to good supply chain management are described in the course materials and other resources.
