Enseignant(s): Gallay Olivier, Filliger Roger

Langue: Anglais


Summary

This course discusses quantitatively some important and generic performance and reliability issues that affect the behaviour of supply chains, and in particular manufacturing systems.

Content

Keywords

Stochastic manufacturing systems, production flows, hedging stock policies, inventory management, supply chain dynamics, discrete-event simulations.

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

MATH 234 Probabilities and Statistics, or similar.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Identify and characterize the relevant parameters that are influencing material flows in production lines.
  • Synthesize the influence of buffers on the performance of transfer lines.
  • Compute optimal hedging stock policies.
  • Model the general dynamics of simple supply chains, and discuss linear stability issues.
  • Examine the behaviour of manufacturing systems and supply chains using a discrete-event simulator.

Assessment methods

Final written exam (80% of the grade), project work during the semester (20% of the grade).
