About the Course

The COVID-19 pandemic has had several implications for businesses. However, few of them are as consequential as disruptions caused to global supply chains. Historically, supply chains have always been subject to disruptions caused by external factors and market variables, but the COVID-19 pandemic has come with extreme levels of difficulty. While the businesses slowly move towards normalcy, the pandemic will result in longer-lasting reconfigurations of supply chains to build resilience and manage disruptions.

Being a leader in the field of supply chain and operations management, NITIE is proud to present the Global Online Certification Course on 'Supply Chain Operations and Disruptions Management: A Way Forward' in association with Prof. Tadeusz Sawik.

The course focuses on supply chain operations and disruptions management. It covers basic and advanced 'Supply chain scheduling' and 'supply chain disruptions management' concepts. The course also emphasizes upon mathematical modelling and optimization of business objectives using Mixed-Integer Programming (MIP) through hands-on training on AMPL. It includes real-life business cases with mathematical modeling and obtaining optimized solutions using MIP.

Our goal for this course is to help you understand advanced supply chain management concepts, and better prepare you for uncertainties & disruptions. The mathematical approach of MIP, which is a pedestal of this course, can be used to achieve optimal or near-optimal solutions. The concepts of this course will aid you to tackle supply chain uncertainties while making better business decisions.

As we enter the new era of the supply chain, this course should provide you with a strong foundation of supply chain disruptions management, risk mitigation and optimization.
