Course Overview According to the “Supply Chain Talent of the Future” report published by Deloitte, more than 95% of the supply chain leaders identified advanced analytics including optimization and predictive analytics as the foremost capability of the future and said either that their companies currently use them or that they expect to in the future. The comprehensive supply chain network design course is the first course in a series of courses on supply chain optimization & analytics. As far as supply chain network design is concerned, it is the most critical discipline of supply chain & operations management as network costs contribute as much as 80% to the supply chain costs. Supply chain network design is necessary to implement a supply chain that can quickly and efficiently distribute the products. It is an important driver for growth and expansion of businesses. It would be no exaggeration to state that two of the planet's largest companies, Walmart and Amazon, have built their successful businesses around outstanding supply chain network design and operations. This course will help you learn and master the art and science of supply chain network design & optimization. This course aims to teach you in detail how to use optimization to model and design a high performance supply chain. Learn and Master the Practical Aspects of Supply Chain Network Design Fundamental Concepts of Supply Chain Network Design Advanced Network Modeling Case Study Discussions Supply Chain Network Optimization Problems Real Life Network Design Project Content and Overview This course is divided into 7 modules. Through this course, you will learn fundamentals and establish a strong understanding of the concepts related to supply chain network design. In order to transform your learning into skills, the course includes case study discussions, network optimization sample problems and one real life project. This course starts by giving you an overview of supply chain network design and then introduces you to supply chain optimization and use of Excel solver to solve supply chain problems. Once the basics are mastered, the course helps you deep dive into network design and learn how to make network design decisions like facility location, capacity allocation, supply & demand allocation etc. The course also introduces some other components like service modeling and greenhouse gas emission modeling as part of network design. You will then learn some advanced modeling strategies and finally go through an hour long real life supply chain network design project. Upon completion you will have a strong understanding of supply chain network design and will be able to execute various types of network design projects.
This module provides an overview of the Comprehensive Supply Chain Network Design Course.
This is the concluding module of supply chain network design course. This module will cover two miscellaneous topics related to this course. The module covers the challenges associated with network design projects and also discusses various network optimization tools.
This core module includes a real life supply chain network design project. This module will walk the participants through a real life network design project in a step by step manner. This is one of the three core modules in this course and is recommended to be taken by professionals of all experience level. This module explains how to put all the learnings in other modules of this course in practice to execute a network design project. The participants will learn how to approach a supply chain design project and also about the various steps involved in a design project.
This module is about advanced supply chain modeling strategies. This module explains some advanced modeling strategies which are critical for executing supply chain network design projects. The participants will learn advanced modeling strategies like 80/20 rule, aggregation, infeasibility analysis etc. For those with little experience in supply chain modeling, this module should be reviewed before moving on to the other modules.
This is the second core module on designing optimal supply chain network. This module will explain how to use supply chain modeling to design an optimal supply chain network. This is one of the three core modules in this course and is recommended to be taken by professionals of all experience level. This module helps participants master three special components of supply chain network design: determining optimal number of facilities, service component modeling and greenhouse gas emission modeling. The participants will also learn about transportation decisions in supply chain network design.
