Earn a Certificate in Supply Chain Modeling

October 26th, November 2nd, November 9th | 3 Week Virtual Master Class | $550

Regardless of whether you manage your supply chain with MRP style planning or a Lean approach, all methodologies rely on the stability of supplier lead time and predictability of demand. We know that in the last view years, both assumptions have been challenged. Stability of demand and replenishment time for supplies are key inputs in handling our processes and inventory management. So what can we do to understand and mitigate the effects we see from this rising variation? And what about the variation we cause ourselves due to product and process complexity?

Master Series: October 26th, November 2nd, and November 9th at 11:00-12:30 PM Eastern

Join us for a curated Master class that will explore common supply chain problems we're all facing, including unpredictable lead times, labor constraints, and inaccessible goods. MoreSteam's Lean expert and Senior Master Black Belt, Dr. Lars Maaseidvaag, will demonstrate these supply chain effects and model various scenarios using Process Playground. The class will cover best practices regarding inventory planning and complexity reduction.

Included in this Master Class series:

  • Three 90-minute virtual sessions led by Dr. Lars Maaseidvaag
  • 17-hour Supply Chain Modeling eLearning course
  • 180-day access to EngineRoom Data Analysis with Process Playground
  • Downloadable certificate upon completion of the course, including a digital badge
