A supply chain is a network of organizations that are involved in the different processes and activities that produce value in the form of products and services.  Increased competition, expanding product variety and more demanding consumers require more efficient supply chains.  Supply chain management is an essential competitive tool.  Innovations arise from three main sources: application of information technology, reconfiguration of the supply chain network, and modification of incentives.  Effective supply chain management can enable companies to increase market shares, reduce costs, and improve customer service.  In this course, we will introduce main concepts and analytical tools for supply chain management.  We will address the following issues: leveraging information to improve supply chain efficiency; multi-level inventory optimization; collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment; postponement for efficient supply chain design; managing short life cycle products through accurate response; outsourcing and procurement management; and supply chain finance.
