This course examines facility-related decisions that companies should take into account when designing their supply chain network. We look at the uncertainties in demand that impact supply chain decisions, identify sources of risk for global supply chains and discuss strategies to mitigate risk. Students are equipped with the skills to match demand with available supply in the most optimal manner, balancing capacities and raw material procurement against customer forecasts.
