What You Will Learn

When companies are developing their supply chain network plan, they will often turn to supply chain optimization tools to model potential network changes, inventory levels, customer assignment, and other supply chain network decisions. While these tools can help in the decision-making process, they leave out a lot of critical steps and considerations when modifying a supply chain network by expanding existing facilities or selecting a new facility location. This presentation will break down the step by step plan for modeling, designing facilities, as well as when and how to engage state and local development groups to aid in the supply chain optimization process.
