Programme Overiew
It is almost a cliche that companies now compete on the excellence of their supply chains rather than individually.  In the past decade or so, supply chains have become more global, “longer”, and hence riskier and less susceptible to control by a single dominant player.   Understanding the basics of a supply chain is therefore more important than ever.  This 4-day course emphasizes those strategic and operational principles that enable you to serve your customer better.  These include the strategic foundations of a supply chain (what type of supply chain is “right” for your product?), the important concept of flow and variability in a production system (via a thorough examination of the famed Toyota Production System), and various fundamental operational concepts such as buffering and inventory, aggregate planning, service levels, and risk management.  Wherever possible service supply chains are also considered, and major differences between product and service supply chains pointed out.  Finally we discuss two capstone topics that serve to unify the course: innovation and how it happens in the supply chain, and the damaging effects that the lack of coordination can produce.  Throughout the course the discussion is kept at a managerial (rather than a technical) level.

Programme Content
The topics range from supply chain strategy (including sourcing) through aggregate planning and forecasting to execution such as product availability and pricing. We also include a discussion of the pervasive phenomenon of amplification and oscillations in a supply chain.

Key Benefits/Takeaways
The program will help the participant understand and appreciate various tools and frameworks related to developing and executing a supply chain to successfully match customers’ needs.  The various case studies and best practices studies will help the participant develop a mindset to look at the supply chain holistically rather than take localized decisions.

The main objectives of the course are:

  • Understand the strategic foundations and best practices in product supply chains.
  • Design a supply chain network that supports the supply chain strategy to be followed.
  • Learn to apply the capacity and flow principles of the Toyota Production System to the supply chain as a whole.
  • Understand the most important tactical and operational concepts that apply to all supply chains: matching supply and demand (aggregate planning), buffering (variability and inventory management), and sourcing and contracts (aligned incentives).
  • Understand the fundamental nature of product availability (service levels), pricing and revenue management for the customer.
  • Understand the importance of innovation in the supply chain and how to foster it.
  • Understand why lack of coordination in the supply chain leads to seriously damaging uncontrolled effects such as oscillations in the supply chain.
  • Appreciate the main consequences of the differences between service and product supply chains.

The material is delivered primarily through case studies, exercises and group discussions, and should be of benefit to virtually any senior manager, particularly those involved in operational and supply chain matters.

Who Should Attend
This course is suitable for senior supply chain and operations managers in both manufacturing and service sectors.  More attention is now being devoted to service delivery and service supply chains and we hope to cover that.

Programme Directors

Professor Sapra completed his PhD in Supply Chain Management at Cornell University and bachelor’s in mechanical engineering at IIT Roorkee. Prior to joining IIMB, he taught at the University of Florida and Cornell University in the US. His research interests include Supply Chain Management, Pricing and Inventory Management. His research has appeared in top-tier journals such as Operations Research and Manufacturing and Service Operations Management. He has also co-authored a book entitled, Principles of Inventory Management: When You Are Down to Four, Order More (published by Springer in 2010). He has been a “Young Faculty Research Chair” at IIMB.

Professor Sudhir Chadha is a graduate of IIT Kanpur, and obtained his doctorate in theoretical physics at the University of Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He then pursued research in theoretical particle physics first at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen (as a Royal Society European Fellow), then at Centre d’Etudes de Nucleaire a Saclay in Paris, CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear research) in Geneva, and the University of Oxford. He has published over 25 papers in international journals. His main research interests were (are) in fundamental physics, unified theories, and the structure of the Higgs boson. He is also the author (with H. B. Nielsen) of the so-called Nielsen-Chadha theorem on symmetry breaking in nonrelativistic systems. Following his academic career in physics, Sudhir joined IBM UK, and became a consulting Partner in the IBM Global Business Services Division specializing in supply chain management, innovation, and project management. He executed major projects in the manufacturing industry with many clients including Rolls-Royce Aeroengines, Caterpillar, Honda Motors, and Rover Automobiles. About ten years ago Sudhir returned to academia (again!) to teach supply chain and project management at the University of Warwick UK as well as part-time at the IIMB (as an adjunct faculty).
