This three-day course is suited for professionals new to the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) framework and implementation body of knowledge. Based on a solid repository of improvement program metrics and processes, SCOR has evolved to become an important performance management-tool for companies seeking to elevate their supply chain performance.
This course makes you question the traditional way of inventory planning and control MRP. It covers topics on how to reduce stocks by creating buffers where they contribute most to absorbing variation and protecting the flow time (flow). As a student, you learn methods for actively controlling the volume of buffers based on the size and variation of the demand and the lead times in production and purchasing.
The course will appeal to anyone who has to deal with forecasting. There is always a need to find the right method for forecasting of demand, as well as evaluating various alternative methods as change is inevitable in markets, product portfolio’s, distribution channels and available information.
