This subject provides an introduction to quantitative methods that can be used in industry. You will acquire advanced spreadsheet and database modelling skills. The subject will introduce static and dynamic models of supply chains and logistics systems. Specifically it will apply transport and transhipment models to optimise supply chains.
The subject will enhance your appreciation of logistics and the usefulness of mathematical and statistical models in solving logistics problems. You will learn to think systematically about the fundamental processes involved and to evaluate the performance of a supply chain as a system. You will also develop your critical thinking skills to the point where you are able to deliberate on contemporary issues in supply chain management.
