Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you will explore the analytical methods and tools used by practitioners to effectively analyse supply chain data, extract actionable knowledge and make decisions. You will study the key drivers of logistics and supply chain performance, including demand and supply planning, location analysis and network management. You will also examine the key elements of inventory planning, logistics management, sourcing and procurement, revenue management and service chain operations and management. You will learn how to evaluate and select a suitable tool among a variety of methods used for the conception, design, implementation and operation of logistics and supply chains, and apply it in the design and implementation of innovative solutions. Using authentic case studies, you will develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills required to identify problems in the supply chain and develop practical solutions to address these problems. This will provide you with a deep understanding of how using data and analytical tools can help supply chain analysts to create efficient and effective logistics and supply chain operations.
