Program

Supply chain management is a young but isn't simple discipline. It also resembles youngsters in their rapid rate of development. Staying abreast of the theoretical and practical aspects of supply chain management – it requires constant attention.

Transportation systems are composed of a complex set of relationships between the demand, the locations they service and the networks that support movements. You'll learn how to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of different transportation modes and how transportation systems use different modes to facilitate the efficient movement of goods from origin to destination.

Warehousing and Inventory Management  is a discipline primarily about specifying the shape and placement of stocked goods. It is required at different locations within a facility or within many locations of a supply network to precede the regular and planned course of production and stock of materials. You will find out how to design warehousing facility. You will also understand the different types of inventory and why they are important to ensure customers can find the products they are looking for.

Strategic supply chain operations put companies on a path to sustained improvement critical to business operations including company costs and profits. The value of successfully addressing supply chain challenges is not only cost savings, but also significant quality and customer service improvements across the entire supply chain. The need for improved and integrated supply chain planning and execution has become a common theme for companies of all sizes.

Learn how to plan the inner workings of an organization and its projects in order to reach the highest quality of work. Lean Six Sigma stands for continuous improvement. The methodology shows the way even for the most successful companies, to become more effective. Lean Six Sigma consists of a number of tools – implementation of those tools will allow to reduce costs and at the same time – improve quality.

Why is forecasting important? How can we evaluate a future demand? How do we make mistakes? Forecasting is an imperfect aspect, but it is also a necessity for most businesses. Proper forecasting helps ensure you have enough supply on hand to satisfy demand.

In the purchasing world, it’s easy to use terms like supply chain management and procurement interchangeably. Most of us probably have at some point or another. In reality, though the terms are  related, they shouldn’t be used interchangeably because they don’t mean the same thing. Understanding the difference between the two ensures you’ll use the right term when you need it.

Great Suppliers Make Great Supply Chains © Suppliers are expected to perform various roles to support effective supply chain management. The nature of supplies, the agreements or the contracts and the type of relationships expected between a company and its suppliers have direct influence on the whole way from suppliers to end customers.

What makes a supply chain organization best in class? The answer will vary for each company, but there are some practices that many leading companies are adopting now.
