The Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, a unit of the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, launched a new course in February 2009. The course, titled "Supply Chain Analytics: What Every Supply Chain & Logistics Analyst Should Know" is designed to provide fundamental knowledge and insights to supply chain and logistics analysts and those who want to understand and act on the information provided by these analysts. The course will include a mix of practical lectures, insightful case studies and lively classroom discussions. Early bird discounts are available. Members of IIE, INFORMS, CSCMP, AST&L, Logistics Innovation Council and SCL course alumni receive a 10% discount. Visit www.scl.gatech.edu/scanalytics09.

The value of supply chain analytics is to provide timely and actionable information to supply chain and logistics managers and decision makers. Over the past 20 years supply chains have become dramatically more complex. As a result, managers find it increasingly difficult to achieve performance goals and control costs. Effectively coping with this complexity requires the ability to take the mountain of available enterprise data and turn it into information that can use as the basis for planning and controlling supply chains in near real time. This task is simply not possible without trained supply chain and logistics analysts with the proper tools to automate tactical decision making and to provide business intelligence for more strategic supply chain design and alignment decisions.

Some of the principles covered in the course include:
* How to use lean supply chain concepts as a framework for supply chain analytics
* How to determine if you have a reasonable amount of inventory
* How to improve inventory performance
* How to predict demand and other requirements
* How to control "last mile" costs
* How to align and synchronize transportation
* How to manage and reduce supply chain variability and risk, and
* How to design and coordinate supply chains

The lead instructors for the course are Drs. H. Donald Ratliff and Paul Griffin. Both are distinguished members of the Georgia Tech teaching community. Ratliff is the UPS Professor of Logistics and the Executive Director for the Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. His current research and logistics competencies include intermodal network design, supply chain integration, delivery strategies, cross docking, vender managed re-supply, real-time routing, shipment planning, logistics performance measurement, and container port operations. Griffin is the Co-Director for the Center for Health Care Logistics and professor of the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. His current research activities have focused on cost-effectiveness modeling of public health interventions, health logistics, health access and economic modeling, and supply chain coordination and control including pricing and contracting mechanisms.
