Managing supply chains (SCs) is one key factor for many organizations, while new technologies and data-driven software solutions offer the policymakers the to optimize their decision-making processes. Diversification in local and global supply and distribution, increased customer expectations, increasing involvement of man and smart machines in the Industry 4.0 era, and enormous customisation of products results in a significant increase in complexity in the decision-making process. Consequently, traditional manual planning activities are challenged and there is a need to change the planning process within organizations. To overcome this challenge, decision-makers, at first sight, need to understand the benefits of supply chain analytics, in making a reasonable and reliable base for decision making for the modern SCs.
This short course will familiarise participants, especially those who engage with day-to-day decision-making in SCs or are interested to plan to follow that career path. This course and accompanying short case studies will facilitate both tactical and operational level complex decision problems under uncertainties.
No prior knowledge is assumed, however, basic skills in Microsoft Excel, and knowledge of High School level maths would be an advantage.
