Inhalte der LV

This course covers three planning hierarchies: tactic and operational planning problems in inventory management, and strategic network planning.  It focuses on identifying problem types and finding the most relevant information in the problems in order to formulate the problems to assist decision making. Students are exposed to concepts and models important in inventory planning with emphasis on key trade-offs and phenomena. The following topics are discussed:

  • Single-period inventory modeling: Newsvendor framework
  • Two extensions of Newsvendor
    • Reactive capacity (dual sourcing model)
    • Supply chain coordination 
  • Multi-period inventory modeling
    • Periodic review and base stock policy
    • Continuous review and fix order quantity policy
  • Inventory Pooling effects
  • Strategic network design


    Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

    After completion of this course the students are expected to be able to:

    • Understand the inventory planning systems, modeling approaches, and trade-offs among parameters and how they affect the decisions
    • Derive and formulate the given inventory-related problems for different scenarios
    • Interpret results, draw conclusion, and give managerial insight
