SMT - Logistics

The interconnections between procurement, operations and transportation will be explored in this course.

  • forecasting
  • uncertainty
  • safety stocks
  • customer service requirements

Computer systems such as Distribution Requirement Planning, Warehouse Management Systems, and Transport Management Systems will also be presented.
