Learn how to use techniques to evaluate and design complex supply chain systems and processes. As part of the Rutgers Stackable Business Innovation Program (rSBI), the Supply Chain Modeling and Simulation Concentration is stackable with the following master's programs: Master of Supply Chain Analytics, MS in Healthcare Analytics and Intelligence, MS in Supply Chain Management, MBA.
This concentration is intended to prepare students for modeling and simulating various problems related to supply chain management, such as procurement, manufacturing, logistics and distribution, inventory, and customer relationship.
You can take the course listed below as individual classes or as stackable courses towards the completion of a concentration.
This course introduces discrete event simulation applied to problems in manufacturing, inventory control, and engineering economics. Topics include simulation languages, estimating production system operating characteristics, comparing alternative systems, and validating approximate analytical models.
The objective of this course is to introduce models and tools to efficiently manage operations and supply chains that produce and distribute products and services. Topics include Forecasting, production and logistics, sales and operations planning, inventory management, project management and manufacturing systems. We illustrate the effectiveness of these models and tools by games, real-life cases and examples mainly drawn from diverse industries such as manufacturing, transportation, pharmaceutical, fashion and healthcare.
This course provides a broad overview of key supply chain strategies, issues and challenges. Successful supply chain management requires cross-functional integration of key business processes within the firm and across the network of firms that comprise the supply chain. The challenge is to determine how to successfully accomplish this integration. Other topics covered include the management aspects of logistics networks, forecasting, inventory management, supply contracts, strategic alliances, supply chain integration and design, procurement and outsourcing, customer value, international issues, and a quick review of supply chain software. Case studies, supplemented with a Supply Chain Simulation, and guest speakers are used to illustrate the issues discussed in lectures.
The concentration and courses are offered by the Supply Chain Management Department in collaboration with the School of Engineering, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
