Saudi Aramco is a national petroleum and natural gas company, and is based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Aramco must be concerned with many of the supply chain issues mentioned in Chapter One of your text. Each of the issues could have an impact on Aramco’s operations, causing inventory issues, late deliveries, or quality concerns.

Examine Aramco’s business Model. Pick one of the following issues, and describe how Aramco is specifically impacted, and how the company may overcome the issue:

·         The need to improve operations

·         Increasing levels of outsourcing

·         Increasing transportation costs

·         Competitive pressures

·         Increasing globalization

·         Increasing importance of e-business

·         The complexity of supply chain

·         The need to manage inventories

Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed reference in supporting your answer unless the discussion calls for more. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.

You need to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this discussion question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies, but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.

Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.
