Program Summary

Variability is the dominate cause of mismatches between supply and demand, from daily inflections in demand to large-scale supply chain disruptions.

In this course, we examine the influence of variability throughout the supply chain, from its impact on simples processes to its effect on complex networks.

We also discuss variability mitigation strategies designed to improve supply chin responsiveness and profitability.

The course material is applicable to a broad audience - executives to tactical-level employees, both manufacturing and service industries, will benefit from the topic coverage.
