Today’s supply management leadership recognizes the need to coordinate the entire throughput of goods and services in a coordinated fashion, from value-added relationships with suppliers through an integrated understanding of our final customer’s value propositions.  Each phase of the supply chain must be coordinated and evaluated to ensure the most efficient and effective process, driving out waste and extracting value wherever possible. This course examines three “logistical” aspects of the supply chain, including Inventory Management, Warehousing, and Transportation. The seminar includes a hands-on, interactive online simulation that teaches participants the basics for the creation and analysis of distribution networks
