Description: Any company can get a product from point A to point B. The trick is doing it cheaper and faster, as customer expectations rise and resources stretch thin. That’s why analytics have become increasingly popular in operations. Blessed with a surplus of raw data, supply chain professionals can use this data to build new models to increase efficiencies across their distribution networks. In this course, students will be exposed to the fundamentals of supply chain analysis, including hands-on experience with uncertainty, statistical regression, optimization (linear, non-linear and mixed) and probability).
Review: No reviews.
