Supply Chain Management: A Decision-Making Framework

Pierre Semal, LouvainX

Learn how to make rational and confident supply chain decisions, by understanding how they impact the finance, market and strategy of your company.

In this business and management course, you’ll learn how make effective supply chain decisions that take into consideration all aspects of your business.

The course will take a helicopter view for decision-making. The helicopter view is built upon:

  • Key questions to decide on: manufacturing organization, late differentiation, location, distribution networks, …
  • Objectives relevant to your business: cost, speed, flexibility, reliability, …

We will work through questions such as:

  • Should you locate a process in a given country? This decision has an obvious impact on your HR costs, but it also affects your working capital and your ability to react to the market needs.
  • Should you centralize your distribution? This decision leads to economies of scale and a better product availability, but it also impacts your carbon emission.

By the end of this course, you will have built a framework that allows you to make better decisions.

What will you learn

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • recognize key questions in the design and management of a supply chain;
  • identify the possible options and solutions to key questions, along with their strengths and weaknesses;
  • translate the company strategy into a clear decision making framework;
  • make strategic decisions based upon this framework.
