RLMT400 Recalls Best Practices and Issues (3 semester hours)
This course provides students with a systems-centric view to explore what is seen as today’s best practices in product recalls in manufacturing and retail. There appears to be no one standard set of practices or steps to follow for recalls. Each time a recall is voluntary or is issued by a company or the government, different procedures seem to be followed. This course will examine case studies of recalls from the food and beverage industry, consumer electronics, automotive, toys, and home appliances and furniture. The student will examine these cases to discover a set of procedures or steps that are common and those that are unique. This course is intended for students and professionals working in reverse logistics, retail business management, general management, transportation management, supply chain management, and corporate and military decision makers.
