Aim and purpose
The aim of the course is to discuss and analyze issues that concern the acquisition and use of analytical models throughout the supply chain.
• This course provides a spreadsheet-based, example-driven approach to learn about important supply chain models, problems, and solution methodologies
• to develop valuable modeling skills that students can appreciate and use effectively in their careers
• reinforce and enrich your understanding of supply chain theories, principles, and concepts studied previously in foundation courses through excel applications (Operations & Supply chain management course)
Linear programming based supply chain models Network design models in the Supply Chain Strategies of aggregate planning models
Designing Distribution Networks and Applications to e-Business Transportation in supply chain which includes Routing and scheduling models Supply chain games
Description of outcome - Knowledge
The student can:
• Explain the subjects’ concepts, models, methods and theories
• Explain the effect of a supply chain on business operations
Description of outcome - Skills
The student can:
• Identify main problems in logistics, and coordination of information in a supply chain
• Model and solve “messy” supply chain problems
• Understand the importance of transportation and logistics in the supply chain and be familiar with ways in which transportation problems are modeled and solved
Description of outcome - Competences
• Choose and apply an appropriate inventory model to improve supply chain performance
• Use Excel to solve several supply chain operational problems and to propose changes that improve competitiveness

Access to supply chain simulation software “The Fresh Connection” by InChainge.
The course is taught in English. The format is a mixture of lectures and interactive elements like group exercises, class room experiments and the use of supply chain simulation software. In doing so, the student is supported in evolving competencies as stated in the goals description.
Following specific instructions, students in groups of 3-5 must submit an approval report in Supply Chain Simulation.
No individual feedback, but simply "approved" or "not approved".
It is expected that the student will use:
Lectures and Tutorials 28 hours
Preparation 103 hours
Exam 4 hours
Total 135 hours
Form of examination
It is allowed to bring USB keys, books and notes
Via SDU-assignment on the course page on.
Participation in the re-examination requires that you have participated in the ordinary examination in the same exam period.
Re-examination can be held as an oral exam if the number of registered examinees dictates this exam form as the most appropriate.
NOTE - This course is identical with the former course Supply Chain Analytics, 8851401.
Update: 22-01-2020 - New book (Weenk)
