Quantitative tools, techniques, and concepts can dramatically change the way businesses operate their supply chain, logistics, manufacturing, and service operations. This course is designed to equip participants with fundamental quantitative techniques to help make more informed managerial decisions. Specifically, this course will cover models for designing and optimizing supply, distribution, and transportation networks, modeled as Transportation problem, Assignment problem, or Shortest-path problem. Models which include integer decision variables, as in distribution network design, will also be discussed. Focus of the course will be learning network modeling and solving the models using computer-based tools. The course will also require participants to work in groups to model and solve a real-life-sized network.
This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Supply Chain Engineering
Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
1. Understand techniques for solving network models based on linear and mixed-integer programs.
2. Be able to model supply and distribution network problems.
3. Be able to model transportation and assignment problems.
The topics covered in this course include:
1. Introduction to Linear Programming; Sensitivity analysis and
interpretation of results.
2. Linear programming applications: Make-or-buy decision, Production scheduling, Workforce assignment, etc.
3. Solving Liner Programming models using Excel Solver.
4. Distribution and network models: Transportation problem, Assignment problem, Shortest-route problem.
5. Integer linear programming: Distribution network design, Production scheduling with changeover costs
Working adults from the industry, professionals seeking mid-career change or fresh graduates with relevant background.
