Areas of Focus
The Supply Chain and Logistics Institute hosts a series of monthly seminars open to interested SCL faculty, students and corporate partners as well as the general public. If you are interested in attending any of the sessions, please review the below information and register online.
The cost to attend is $25 per session which includes a boxed lunch*. Attendance to the sessions is complimentary for SCL corporate partners, SCL Industry Advisory Board members, SCL affiliated faculty and students, and students enrolled in the Masters in Supply Chain Engineering program.
*To take advantage of the included lunch, you must register by the noted deadlines. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
We will discuss the use of simulation as a tool for analyzing and improving supply chain performance. In particular, we will show how simulation can be used to (i) evaluate the effectiveness and robustness of a particular supply chain implementation, and (ii) compare the performance of competing supply chain strategies.
Companies are measuring and reporting their supply chain energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and other environmental metrics. The first part of the talk will overview what is being measured and reported in a selection of industries - who, what, where, when, why, and how. The second part will focus on approaches for reducing these impacts, challenges in quantifying them, and methods for improvement.

The New Frontier of Data-Driven Price Optimization
RSVP by October 20, 2017
In practice, firms are often faced with pricing challenges including high demand uncertainty, limited inventory, and restrictions to conduct price experimentation. In this talk, I will discuss models and algorithms that combine machine learning and price optimization. The key idea of these algorithms is to use real-time sales data to improve pricing decisions. I will report simulation and field experiment results that show significant revenue improvement using these methods.
