Advanced Planning In Supply Chain Management

Category: Advanced Planning In Supply Chain Management

Course Description

This course of a hugely important work gives a broad and up-to-date overview of the concepts underlying APS. Special emphasis is given to modeling supply chains and implementing APS successfully in industrial contexts. What’s more, delegates’ understanding is enhanced by several case studies covering a wide range of industrial sectors.

Benefit of attending:

  • Describe a supply chain and define supply chain management.
  • Describe the objectives and elements of supply chain management.
  • Describe local, regional, and global supply chain management activities among services and manufacturing companies.
  • Describe a brief history and some of the trends of supply chain management.
  • Understand how the bullwhip effect impacts supply chain members.
