This programme covers many facets of logistics and supply chain management to create significant competitive advantages. The graduates can find their career in the field of controlling the production planning and scheduling process; making effective use of the enterprise resources planning (ERP) system, while anticipating its impact on the manufacturing process and on inventories; planning and forecasting while translating internal and external customer demands; and managing the supply chain while evaluating it and making effective use of relevant tools, principles and concepts. In this specialization students will learn to meet these challenges by getting to grips with key issues in supply chain design. This involves pinpointing the best location for production facilities and distribution centres, and identifying the resources they need. They will learn how to structure operations management in production, warehousing, transport and distribution, and purchasing. The key is to give customers the standard of service they want and to ensure process reliability. Production and logistic management is about understanding the impact of customized logistical designs on overall performance. Students will apply advanced software tools for enterprise resource planning and integer linear programming problems, capacity analysis of production systems, distribution planning and vehicle routing.
