Introduction

Supply chains don't manage themselves, although managers sometimes wish they did. For everything you'll need to know about analyzing supply chains, you'll need MODELING THE SUPPLY CHAIN. By using models to analyze the supply chain, you can quickly and effectively find ways to optimize its performance.

On completion of this course you should be able to: 

  • Discuss the ways in which supply management is integrated management and how models can help managers achieve holistic or integrated planning.
  • Explore the ways in which supply chain modeling draws on concepts from many disciplines including strategy formation, logistics, management accounting, demand forecasting, and operations research.
  • Discuss the developments in information technology that have made holistic supply chain planning possible and necessary.
  • Understand the importance of the acquisition and application of analytical IT tools, such as descriptive and optimization models in improving supply chain management.
  • Examine a hierarchy of modeling systems intended to support strategic, tactical, and operational supply chain decision making.
