Operational Management of Industrial Wood Supply

This is the third course in the master’s program Industrial Wood Supply Mangement. It focuses on the operational steps of raw material supply: How to go from plan to practical implementation with as efficient use of resources as possible. The course content trains the students’ ability to handle the operational challenges connected to supply industries with the right forest raw material in the right time and to the right price, while securing resource efficiency and sustainability. The course is divided into three main sections; Harvesting, transportation, and coordination and control. The harvesting and transportation sections include economics, service procurement, management, and control to fulfil delivery plans to industries. Coordination and control includes organization of activities for planning, execution, and control along the supply chain.

The course can be completed entirely on distance. Teaching takes place from the campus in Umeå, where infrastructure is provided for students who are physically present.

Information from the course leader

Välkommen till kursen Operativ styrning av virkesleveranser som ingår i mastersprogrammet Skoglig råvaruförsörjning!

Här kommer allmän information om studentkonto, registrering på kurs, samt annan praktisk information:

Studentkonto

Studentkonto behövs för att komma åt mejl, Zoom, Canvas, VPN och Remote desktop. För information om hur du skapar ett studentkonto, se här: https://student.slu.se/studieservice/it-stod1/support/ny-student-kom-igang/.

Registrering på kurs

Du kommer sannolikt att antas till kursen med villkor, och kan därmed inte självregistrera dig på kursen. Detta beror på att föregående kurs i programmet ger nödvändiga förkunskaper som uppfyller behörighetsvillkoren för denna kurs. Kursledaren granskar dina uppnådda meriter i samband med kursstarten och avgör om villkoren uppfyllts och du får registreras. Det sker då manuellt. Om du uppfyllt behörighetsvillkoren redan vid antagningen så kan du självregistrera dig.

Särskilt studiestöd

Har du behov av särskilt stöd för undervisning ska du informera kursledaren om det redan vid kursstart så att eventuella särskilda arrangemang kan ordnas. Se https://student.slu.se/studieservice/studiestod/funka/vilket-stod-kan-jag-fa/
