    Description

    Large-scale enterprises as well as medium-sized firms have increasingly globalized their value creation activities over the past few years. They operate in global markets – with regard to procurement and production as well as in relation to their customers, who are supplied by global distribution systems. Therefore companies need to optimally design and coordinate their globally distributed value creation activities (particularly production and logistics). This lecture provides insight in important planning procedures, which support firms in solving these challenges. The focus lies in understanding and applying modern analytical approaches, which are utilized in business practice by industrial, commercial, and logistics companies and which are oftentimes applied by modern planning software.
    The following topics will be addressed: Strategic Network Design, Distribution Network Design, Coordination Under Uncertainty, and Transportation Network Design and Planning, among others. The analytical approaches will be illustrated using practical planning problems and enhanced with case studies, simulations, etc. In addition, specific challenges, faced by management in applying these techniques, will be discussed.

    Description

    The daily working life of a manager naturally involves taking a large number of decisions, with varying amounts of importance, complexity and availability of supporting data.  This course will initially cover concepts and methods to structure managerial decisions in a coherent fashion and to deal with multiple objectives. Thereupon, the concepts of risk, uncertainty, and managers’ risk attitudes will be introduced, along with modeling via Monte Carlo Simulation and scenario analysis. The framework will then be extended to groups of interacting subjects, both with common and contrasting objectives. Finally, in order to link theory with practice, models and methods will be applied to a variety of different case studies from different business domains.

    After successfully completing the course, students should be able to:

    Understand and apply the principles of rational decision making in a business context.
    Apply advanced decision support methods (such as decision trees, Monte Carlo simulations, scenario analysis) to analyze and structure strategic business decisions. Please download the syllabus for detailed information.

    Description

    This lecture imparts students with important, releavant practical methods and tools in Operations/Logistics Management. The understanding and application of modern analytical approaches used by manufacturing and service companies is the core of this lecture. Particular concentration is placed on the optimal design and management of production, inventory and logistics management in a volatile environment.

    Among others, the following topics are discussed:

    Forecasting, Inventory & Capacity Management Under Uncertainty, Revenue Management, Integrated Sales & Operations Planning. The analytical approaches are illustrated based on planning problems in practice and their understanding is deepened with case studies, simulations, etc. Moreover, specific management problems in applying these procedures are examined.

    Description

    Large-scale as well as medium-sized companies have progressively globalized their value creation activities over the past years. They operate in global markets – both in procuring goods and services as well as in dealing with customers. At the same time, many companies have outsourced fundamental parts of their value creation to partners (i.e. suppliers, logistics service providers, etc.). In order to decrease production and procurement costs, outsourcing partners have been chosen in low-cost countries (so-called low cost country sourcing). Companies are faced with the problem of designing and coordinating the best possible strategies for global value networks (global supply chains). In this lecture, important theoretical and practical issues in strategic management of global supply chains are addressed.

    The following topics are discussed:
    Introduction to Global Supply Chain Strategies Design of Global Production Networks Global vs. Local Sourcing Contract Manufacturing und Supply Chain Intermediaries Incentive Structures and Coordination in Global Supply Chains.
