Supply Chain Analytics

Learn the roles of analytics in supply chain management, different types of analytics (descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive), cleaning and preparing data for analyses, conducting exploratory data analyses, visualizing data and creating dashboard, and story telling with data.

Description

Uncovering insights from data is becoming increasingly important in today’s supply chain management. The Covid-19 pandemic has escalated the need for firms to manage and make sense of data. Supply chain analytics involves the use of data and analyses to gain insights about supply chain operations and make better, fact-based decisions. While the scope of analytics spans descriptive analytics, predictive analytics, and prescriptive analytics, average users primarily deal with descriptive analytics in the day-to-day operations. Reports such as those sales and revenue, work flow, and sales are all examples of descriptive analytics.
