Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the efficient management of the set of often autonomous parties involved in the design of new products and services, procuring raw materials, transforming them into semifinished and finished products, and delivery to the end customer. The course covers the challenges and problems of supply chain design (sourcing, location, capacity, flexibility), information and coordination aspects in distributed decision making (bullwhip effect, supply contracts, marketing-operations interface), and quantitative approaches for collaborative forecasting, planning, and replenishment. This course is the base module for the Supply Chain Management specialization (KFK) and is recommended to be taken prior to other modules of the KFK.

Assessment and permitted materials

Home assignments (30%), midterm exam (35%), final exam (35%)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The objective is to get an overview of the basic problems, concepts and technologies of supply chain management and learn decision support techniques to make decisions in centralized and decentralized value chains. Especially, the coordination of suppliers and manufacturers with the respective information and incentive alignment problems will be discussed and illustrated by experiments.

Examination topics

The course consists of a sequence of lectures, exercise classes, case studies and business games. The famous MIT beer game will be played in class to motivate essential information and incentive problems in supply chains. Further, the participants will learn how to model and analyze supply chain design and control problems using quantitative methods. Basic concepts will be illustrated using Excel-sheets.
