Full course description
Demand Planning & Inventory Management
In this Global Supply Chain course, we will take a closer look at the third pillar of a Global Supply Chain. The focus will be on understanding the role of successful demand planning and inventory management functions in Industry 4.0, including the key elements: integral planning techniques and processes, demand planning and inventory tools, statistics and data analytics, forecasting methodologies, and managing one-time events versus projected run-rate. Students will apply the elements of demand planning and inventory management through an ongoing inventory management simulation that will take place throughout the course culminating in a final project reviewing lessons learned from the simulation and their tools, methodologies, forecasting and results.
