Excellence in Supply Chain Design and Operation engages participants through computer-based supply chain simulations,
game play, team exercises and case studies that reveal the critical factors one must consider when designing and operating
a responsive, high performance, world class supply chain. This fast-paced, interactive course, led by Professors Jack
Muckstadt and Peter Jackson of Cornell University, provides an understanding of the “Laws of Supply Chain Physics” and
the basic principles of flexible, efficient supply chain design and operation.
Describe the Laws of Supply Chain Physics
Discover the "Power of Pooling"
How to avoid the "Curse of Variety", the misallocation of resources into low-demand rate activities.
