As the capstone in the Supply Chain Analytics Professional program, this course combines advanced analytics and mathematical optimization to find solutions for supply chain problems. You’ll learn various techniques, such as linear programming, mixed integer programming, and heuristics, with a focus on production processes, distribution network optimization, and routing. You’ll learn how to make data-driven decisions based on prescriptive analytics along with best practices for implementing optimization applications. Using the fictional Cardboard Company (CBC) case study, you’ll create production plans that maximize profit, use heuristics to make effective routing decisions, and prescribe ways to reduce costs throughout the supply chain.
While you are not required to complete Transforming Supply Chain Management and Performance Analysis, Creating Business Value with Statistical Analysis, and Machine Learning Applications for Supply Chain Planning prior to this course, we suggest you being familiar with their learning outcomes.
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.
