Seminar 5: "Business Strategies: From EDI to E-commerce"

Surprise Surprise! We had a diagnostic test this seminar. So unprepared for it and I have cleared my notes from my MB362 folder the night before. Though it's an open-book test, I can hardly refer to anything for more information. Realised that importance of the textbook! After diagnostic test, I feel that I need to buck up in thi module. There're so many things I still don't know and I can just stare hard at the test questions.

What have we learnt during the lecture?
- Steps in a typical business purchasing process
- Direct vs. indirect Materials Purchasing
- Logistics activities
- Radio frequency identification devices (RFIDS)
- E-government
- EDI
- Information flows in the EDI purchasing process
- Direct connection EDI
- Indirect connection EDI through a VAN
- EDI on the Internet
- Open Architecture of the Internet
- Supply Chain Management
- Building & Maintaining Trust in the Supply Chain

According to Shaun Rein, though the overall retail sales in China in 2009 would fall because of the financial turbulence, ecommerce is still going to boom. he said "We're expecting a 20 percent growth in 2009, and we think it's actually going to be one of the strongest sectors in China this year because of the financial crisis". http://www.infyecommercesolution.com/
