Program Overview

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 sales and revenue and workflow are examples of descriptive analytics.

In Supply Chain Analytics, you’ll learn the roles of analytics in supply chain management, explore different types of analytics (descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive), and discover how to clean and prepare data for analyses, conduct exploratory data analysis, visualize data and create dashboards, and tell stories with data.
