After having successfully completed this module, the student will be able to:
_ explain a framework of the strategic, tactical and operational planning tasks inherent to modern supply chain management,
_ describe the demand planning process, select appropriate forecasting techniques and interpret the results,
_ set up quantitative models for aggregated planning decisions and use computer tools to solve them,
_ assess decisions about the centralization of inventories in a single stage supply chain,
_ apply strategies for positioning inventories along different stages of a multi-echelon supply chain,
_ name criteria that impact the design of today´s global production and distribution (and reverse logistics)
  networks and use models to make a cost-based evaluation of different network options,
_ name the major players in retail supply chains and describe concepts that support the integration of retailers
  and consumer goods manufacturers to improve overall SC performance.
