Supply Chain Analytics

This course is a part of Supply Chain Management MicroMasters® Program, a 6-course MicroMasters series from edX.

Supply chains are complex systems involving multiple businesses and organizations with different goals and objectives. Many different analytical methods and techniques are used by researchers and practitioners alike to better design and manage their supply chains. This business and management course introduces the primary methods and tools that you will encounter in your study and practice of supply chains. We focus on the application of these methods, not necessarily the theoretical underpinnings.

We will begin with an overview of introductory probability and decision analysis to ensure that students understand how uncertainty can be modeled. Next, we will move into basic statistics and regression. Finally, we will introduce optimization modeling from unconstrained to linear, non-linear, and mixed integer linear programming.

This is a hands-on course. Students will use spreadsheets extensively to apply these techniques and approaches in case studies drawn from actual supply chains .

Guest says:

This course is really difficult and I had to stop a little bit after half way because 10+hrs/wk was unsustainable. The content is good, don't get me wrong, but I found myself spending more time figuring out how to get the software to work and slogging through homework than learning much about supply chain analytics.
