Instructions from instructor:

In this assignment, explain how the concepts in the chapter would affect the industry of your choosing. Keep in mind that you may change industries during the course of this class, but in each post, you must clearly identify what industry you intend to use and explain the concepts in terms of that industry.

This post should be the equivalent of 1-1.5 single-spaced pages for each chapter. It should be in readable form. That means at least five paragraphs on a page. 

Side note from me:

Each chapter is treated as a different paper all within a single paper. So each chapter should be 1 page single spaced with 1 introduction paragraph 2 to 3 body paragraphs, and 1 concluding paragraph per chapter. All chapter need to be related to the auto parts manufacturing industry.

· All of these chapters are from “Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management” 4th edition by John Mangan, Chandra Lalwani, and Agustina Calatayud

· If needed I might be able to get some of the book for a reference/resource.
