Supply Chain Management and Logistics
Prof. I.A. Karimi
National University of Singapore
Introduction This is an introductory course on supply chain management & logistics. It aims to provide
the participants with a broad overview and a comprehensive conceptual understanding of the key terminology, structures, flows, concepts, issues, decisions, methodologies, and applications related to the design, operation, and management of a generic supply chain. The course will use several case study results from industries such as chemicals, computers, airline, automobile, shipping, logistics, pharmaceuticals, etc. to aid the learning. Special emphasis will be on the various components and aspects of the supply chain and how they interact with each other and impact the overall performance and bottomline. The participants will play a computerized game, called Beer game, using their own laptops, to experience for themselves the complex dynamics in a real supply chain using a simulated environment. The course will aim to enable the participants to identify, view, and optimize the relevant supply chain components and issues in an integrated manner to add value for the stakeholders and reduce costs. Representative analytical and modeling methods for optimization and decision support will also be detailed and demonstrated and the role of IT and advanced software tools in enhancing business performance will be highlighted. The course will remove some of the mysticism surrounding and myths behind modeling and optimization, and provide participants with a good grasp of supply chain essentials. The participants will learn the ways and means of evaluating and benchmarking supply chain performance, rationalize the main drivers behind supply chain improvement, and become aware of the main steps and obstacles involved in a real-life project aiming for such improvement. The training methodology will consist of a combination of lectures, discussions, and game. The course will be delivered by an authority in the field of supply chain & logistics modeling and optimization, with vast experience and a good blend of research and consulting in academia and industry.
