Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • have gained in-depth knowledge of supply chain operations and analyzing the behavior of supply chains.
  • The knowledge could be gained in a development project:

    with one or more companies or public organisations
    in a lab environment concerning supply chain software or techniques


  • should be able to analyse and model the behaviour of supply chains using data mining,
  • should be able to model a Business Intelligence setup,
  • should be able to critically evaluate the applied methods and their results


  • possess the ability to identify and implement monitoring and analysis with special focus on cross-company issues (e.g. one or more customers or suppliers)

  • should be able to implement supply chain systems in an industrial, service or public organization

  • must be able to independently make and justify the choice of theories and methods

  • must be able to communicate research-based knowledge and discuss the professional and scientific problems to peers inside and outside of mathematics and economics
