Focusing supply chain management on strategic activities can have a positive impact that resounds throughout the business. There are two core areas where supply chain processes and procedures can contribute to business results: customer happiness and ROI.

History-based forecasting is used to drive supply chain planning, but artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are primed to change that forever. AI- and ML-based predictive models will transform processes like demand sensing, shaping, and orchestration, as well as supply planning. AI will begin to drive dynamic pricing, and new product introductions will be based on predictive market intelligence. AI and ML will also drive new models for product promotions management, as well as responses to disruptions in the supply chain. AI and ML predictions will play a key role in the future of supply chain operations and have a transformative effect on other business processes.

With the continued risk of high-profile hacks that compromise the information of millions of consumers, companies will need to raise the standards of their privacy and protection protocols this year. New regulations to protect privacy that go into effect this year, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will also affect company operations. Tax reform, Brexit, political instability, oil prices, and resource availability will all require action across the enterprise, including within the supply chain. As a result, supply chain planners will need sophisticated modeling capabilities to plan for all potential scenarios.

Supply chain managers are always looking for new ways to take advantage of opportunities and to overcome obstacles as the modern supply chain evolves. With a connected supply chain planning approach and the use of new technologies, data is brought together, and more people are integrated into decision-making processes. As the supply chain of the future comes into view, these trends will play a key role in supply chain transformation.

Supply chain management professionals play a key role in capturing customer demands, creating forecasts, developing schedules, ordering and managing inventory, controlling production orders, and maximizing customer satisfaction. This course will help you succeed in the supply chain management field.

You'll master the fundamentals of supply chain management, including customer demand forecasting, master production scheduling (MPS), material requirements planning (MRP), capacity planning, and production activity control (PAC). The course also includes essential information to help you prepare for internationally recognized supply chain and materials management certification examinations.

This lesson will discuss professional certification, and you'll get acquainted with APICS, the professional society for supply change management (SCM) practitioners. You'll find out about the concept of an operating system and the use of a supply chain. You'll also learn about Material Resources Planning (MRPII) and the role that it plays in an organization.

It will give your students in-depth exposure into the challenges involved in making supply chains work. The business simulation focuses on the development and management of business-to-business relationships between student teams who become either suppliers or distributors within an international business setting. Your students will learn to execute a supply chain strategy and deal with the complexities and conflicts of supply chain management. They will need to balance selfishness and short-term gain with the potential for greater reward resulting from building long-term business relationships. They will learn to negotiate, cooperate, and coordinate to achieve desired ends while focusing on win-win solutions.

Students will discover the challenges and rewards of setting up and managing a lean, reliable supply chain within a one-year time frame. One important skill students will practice in the outsourcing module is negotiation.

A group of venture capitalists will provide the seed capital for your student teams to start their simulated companies. They will become either suppliers or resellers in the microcomputer industry. All firms will have limited financial resources and complete accounting responsibility. Resellers must find suppliers who can produce the goods they wish to sell to the end user market. Suppliers must approach resellers to become their sources of supply. Your students will experience the complicated process of building relationships and putting channels in place. The business simulation provides a full set of supply-chain options, allowing students to make investments to speed up and better coordinate the exchanges between business partners. Achieving high level of supply-chain coordination will require extensive negotiations and trust between the involved parties. 041b061a72
