Description

This free online course introduces you to the Transportation Systems and Modelling Coordination in the context of Supply Chain. You will learn about the role of transport costing in the context of Supply Chain Management and the procedure for determining transportation costs using mathematical modelling. This course is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts.

Next, the course will cover the differences between public and private transports, the use of formula and passenger–kilometre approaches to fix the costs of public transports and how logistics takes place between India and its neighbouring countries. The course gives emphasis to the concept of Information Distortions in the context of Supply Chain Chain Management.

Finally, you will learn about the effects of information distortions in the supply chain and how six sigma and queuing theory helps in developing robust coordination systems. Transportation Systems and Modelling Coordination in the Supply Chain Cert course discusses the procedure for determining transportation costs using mathematical modelling. It will interest students studying management, industrial and systems engineering, mechanical engineering, and related disciplines or those who have an interest in these topics.
