Week 5 - Supply Chain Networks


In this session we shall revisit the network modeling and mathematical programming concepts that we covered at the beginning of this module, but this time with a focus on their applications on the design and operation of supply chain networks.

We are also introducing the concepts of service levels, and build upon our earlier work on clustering to discuss the optimal selection of facility locations.
