Week summary

You’ve reached the end of week 5. In this week we covered sensing, positioning and the Internet of Things.

You have seen that these new technologies are finding their way into supply chains. And you have learned that the sensing of physical items is a basis for a wealth of opportunities for supply chain coordination.

We’ve got one more week to go. In this upcoming week you will learn about the supply chain challenges that exist in the construction and building industry.
