Course Information

Learning Outcome

After successful completion of the module, students will have worked in teams to select, apply and evaluate common quantitative supply chain planning techniques including demand forecasting, master planning, production planning and distribution planning.

•Students will have experienced and solved issues of hierarchical planning on the interfaces between different functions.

•Students will have tested different approaches to solving goal conflicts between functions in an organisation.

 •Students will have experienced and improved problems related to functional organisation within teams and effective management control mechanisms.

Teaching methodology including the use of eLearning tools

The course follows a two-step approach:  In the first part students study theoretical concepts, tools and techniques of supply chain planning based on in-class lectures, case discussions and in-class exercises. In the second part of the course students have the opportunity to apply all concepts in a case study that has to be solved in teams.

Course Overview

Advanced planning systems (APS) enable an efficient coordination of different planning activities within supply chains ranging from long-term supply chain design to the short-term scheduling of tasks. In this context, Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has emerged as a key cross-functional planning activity in many organisations. Once an effective S&OP process has been established, decisions made by senior managers must be put into action effectively. This course is aimed at providing an opportunity to explore the process of operationalizing decisions made during an S&OP process from master planning down to production planning, sequencing and scheduling. During the course, students will have the opportunity to explore the planning tasks and challenges for the following areas:

  • Demand planning and forecasting
  • Hierarchical planning
  • Master planning on rolling horizon
  • Scheduling
  • Order fulfilment and ATP
