Managing today's complex supply chain may seem like a task on par with the 12 labors of Hercules. Every day, supply chain analysts must take a mountain of enterprise data and distill it into information that can be used to plan and control their supply chains in near-real time.
But just as Hercules didn't slay the Hydra or steal the apples of Hesperides all by himself, supply chain and logistics analysts don't have to go it alone. There are places they can turn for help. One such resource is Georgia Tech's upcoming seminar on "Supply Chain Analytics: What Every Supply Chain & Logistics Analyst Should Know."
Scheduled for Feb. 3-6 in Atlanta, the course is designed to teach participants how to use analysis tools and business intelligence software to make better and faster decisions. Among other topics, it will look at how to determine reasonable inventory levels, predict demand, control last-mile costs, and reduce supply chain variability and risk.
