Supply Chain Design

Supply Chain Management,

This Supply Chain Design course is part of the MITx MicroMasters Credential in Supply Chain Management, offered by #1 ranked SCM Master's program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

CTL.SC2x Supply Chain Design covers all aspects involved in the design of supply chains for companies and organizations anywhere in the world. The course is divided into four main topic areas: Physical flow design, Supply chain finance, Information flow design, and Organization/Process design. In the design of physical flows, we show how to formulate and solve Transportation, Transshipment, Facility Location, and Network Design Problems. For financial flows we show how to translate supply chain concepts and actions into the language of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a company. We cover Activity Based Costing, Working Capital, the Cash-to-Cash cycle and Discounted Cash Flow Analysis. The design of the information flow section describes how firms communicate with suppliers (procurement, risk contracts), internal resources (production planning, bills of materials, material requirements planning), and customers (Sales & Operations Planning and other collaboration based processes). In the last section, we introduce performance metric design and organizational design within the supply chain organization focusing mainly on the centralize/decentralize decision.

The main topic areas we will focus on in this course are:

Supply Chain Network Design

Supply Chain Finance

Supplier Management

Production and Demand Planning

Process and Organizational Design

What people are saying

setup unfairly punishes anyone

So, you are presented with not only solving a problem with something you have not seen before, with no partial credit, limited tries (two) and limited time to figure it out, I believe this setup unfairly punishes anyone who is not cheating.

grading system being used

While the content is great, I have become increasingly disenchanted with the grading system being used.

minimum 10 hours per

The material itself is interesting and challenging, and if you take this course you should plan on a minimum 10 hours per week if you get it and much more if you don’t.

The second section concerns financial calculations.

which together constitute 100

MIT makes a great show about the graded homework, midterm and final, which together constitute 100% of your grade (20%, 35%, and 45% respectively), as being 100% assessment, but I would disagree, as in my opinion the assessment materials are maybe 50 to 75% assessment and around 25% lets through a curve ball and see if you can figure it out within the limited time and number of chances allowed on an exam.

bidding models first introduced

The first section continues to work with complex location, shipment, and bidding models first introduced in analytics.
