Event Details

The objective of this Purchasing & Logistics training course on Dynamic Simulation of Supply Chain and Logistics is to teach the delegates how to use simulation tools and techniques for the Design, Analysis and Risk Management of Supply Chain and Logistics activities.

At the end of this training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Perform a Greenfield Analysis of the Supply Chain
  • Understand the risks of Supply Chain and Logistics and the ways to simulate them
  • Perform simulations that will help you with your inventory optimization
  • Acquire the knowledge to predict possible bullwhip and ripple effects
  • Visually present the whole process flow of your Supply Chain and Logistics processes
  • Use the tools for effective transportation planning
  • Present the effects of the proposed changes through the changes in simulation outputs
