Course Content (Syllabus)
The purpose of this module is provide an in-depth view of the analysis and optimization of supply chains. A wide range of supply chain problems are explored including the problems of the optimal ware house establishment, optimal retailer establishment, optimal flows of products between the members of a supply chain using a mathematical tool mixed integer programming. Additionally the software package GAMS is introduced and used in order to take the optimal decision. Finally the vehicle routing problem and the Chinese postman problem are also addressed.
