The course aims to present recent scientific studies in the domain of quantitative supply chain analysis. It covers research topics like: network design, long-haul and short -haul transportation, production and distribution planning in supply chains, scheduling and sequencing, managing inventories in supply chains, supply chain coordination. The scientific articles and book chapters to be studied are generally chosen taking into account the research interests and the academic backgrounds of the participants. Students are wanted to analyze these chosen articles and/or book chapters during the semester and to prepare oral presentations of the assigned materials. Each lesson is organized based on one or two individual presentations followed by discussions. Participants are also wanted to present a literature review on a commonly decided subject at the end of the semester.
