This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • develop strategic directions for supply chain management in alignment with the organisational goals
  • develop a strategy and key performance indicators for supply chain processes
  • lead the development of a risk analysis strategy for a supply chain
  • ensure that procedures identifying where risk occurs, and the measures needed to mitigate such risk, are developed and implemented
  • ensure that a continuous improvement plan, for the information and communications technology (ICT) support of supply chain processes, is developed and implemented.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • outline the typical supply chain models, and describe their management and business process integration
