Description: The first of a three-part series, Supply Chain and Logistics Fundamentals covers the underlying tools and techniques inherent to designing and managing supply chains. In particular, the course covers consumer demand forecasting, inventory control, and transportation management. The course is taught from a managerial perspective, with special emphasis on increasing speed, cutting costs, and avoiding surpluses.

Review: “This course is focused on quantitative methods for logistics and supply chain management. The course is quite challenging and definitely lives up to the MIT & CTL name. I ended up spending 8-10 hours each week completing everything. I thought Prof. Caplice was passionate and enthusiastic as a course lecturer. I recommend some experience with statistics and spreadsheet software before the course starts, but it is not necessary. I definitely recommend this course for those who want to learn and be challenged!” For additional reviews, click here.
