Engineering Management: Supply Chain, Systems Thinking, and Lean Initiatives
The paper illustrates different applications of problem-based learning in junior/senior level Supply Chain Management (SCM) course and the effect of the problem-based learning environment on achieving students learning objective for the course. Sipes’ Problem-Based Curriculum Matrix, which combines Barrows’ Taxonomy of teaching methods with Jonassen’s Problem Typology, was used as a tool. The tool helps enumerate the different types of problem-based learning (PBL) techniques that were used in the course. The tool illustrated that the course used more PBL the second time it was taught. Outcomes of teaching the SCM course in two semesters were compared by class average grade, grade distribution, students’ perception of the level of challenge in their work on a design project, and IDEA teaching evaluation scores from students. The paper will explain the process used and show the results from the first and second time the course was taught.
