Course Description

BUSINESS Q784
Supply Chain Design and Coordination

Supply chain network design is an important strategic decision; some experts claim that 80% of the supply chain costs are a consequence of the supply chain network design. In addition, to manage a supply chain competitively, managers have to make decisions on resources that are not all under their control and consequently have to strategically design coordination mechanisms to optimize their supply chain operations. To address these issues the course will cover location analysis and coordination mechanisms.
