This course is the second of 4 courses in the Supply Chain Analytics Professional (SCA) certificate. While participants are not required to complete the program’s first/previous course(s) in the series, we suggest being familiar with the learning outcomes of the previous course(s).
The course is comprised of (4) half-day online instructor-led LIVE group webinars (May 15, 16, 17, 18 | 1-5pm ET) and pre-work (e.g. installing and testing software on your computer, testing connectivity with LMS and meeting software, etc.) to be completed before the first day of the course.
This course is the second in the four-course Supply Chain Analytics Professional certificate program. It emphasizes operational performance metrics to align supply chain management with strategic business goals. You’ll learn several statistics concepts (e.g. variance analysis, hypothesis testing, forecasting methods) along with inventory management models. You’ll use diagnostic analytics with PowerBI and Python to conduct demand and service profiling, undertake root cause analysis, and use time series forecasting in inventory management.
Experienced business professionals who perform or want to perform analytics to improve their supply chain management processes. They want to tackle strategic goals and to perform leading edge analytics projects that address the full complexity of supply chains.

We designed the courses to apply to both people with experience and without experience in these programs. We will provide resources for installing and getting started with the programs in the weeks leading up to the course. One week before the course starts, we will have a webinar to provide more guidance and provide direct assistance. During the course, we will provide the solutions to the exercises so that participants can choose to write the code on their own, use the solutions as hints, or use the solutions entirely and focus on the content rather than coding.
We designed each course to meet the needs of students who are taking the full certificate series along with the needs of students who are taking a single course. Each course will start with a brief review of previous content for the benefit of everyone but will not go into detail. For the hands-on exercises, we will not expect anyone to come prepared with previously completed work.
