Summaries

Summary Sentence: Explore conceptual and modeling skills to understand and effectively manage humanitarian response from a systems perspective.

Full Summary: This course will focus on conceptual and modeling skills to understand and effectively manage supply chains and operations from a systems perspective. Models will address system characteristics (e.g., demand dependencies) that drive system dynamics and policies to regulate performance. Course topics include methods for improving coordination and collaboration, addressing demand dependencies, and reliably measuring and evaluating system performance.

Classes will be taught by LIVE video instruction similar to the experience you would receive in person with the same interactive components. Each course will run for 1-week Monday through Thursday from 9:30am to 1:00pm EDT each day.

A systems view is needed to ensure appropriate use of scarce resources to meet the multiple, and often conflicting, short- and long-term goals from multiple constituents. This course will focus on conceptual and modeling skills to understand and effectively manage supply chains and operations from a systems perspective. Models will address system characteristics (e.g., demand dependencies) that drive system dynamics and policies to regulate performance. Course topics include methods for improving coordination and collaboration, addressing demand dependencies, and reliably measuring and evaluating system performance.
