Inventory Management and Resource Allocation in Supply Chains

Course Description

Many supply chain decisions are concerned with the timely and efficient procurement, allocation, and distribution of resources (e.g. funds, supplies, volunteers, money, employees, etc.) through a supply chain network. This course will explore methodologies for “medium term” decision making, including procurement and inventory policies, strategies for distribution and allocation of limited resources, and supply chain design.
