What You'll Learn
To match supply with demand, companies must design, plan, and control supply chains that are economical, sustainable, and resilient. Designing involves the formation of a supply chain network that requires decisions and trade-offs with strategic long-term implications. The network provides the structure in which medium-term planning occurs. Management and control of the plan occurs on the shortest-term time horizon. Therefore, supply chain design, planning, and control must be carefully orchestrated through logistic and inventory management strategies that result in significant competitive advantage. This course considers such strategies and utilizes various techniques such as presentation, case studies, and spreadsheet exercises, allowing participants to develop a set of practical tools that can be immediately implemented.
