Businesses, consumers, and societies leave behind massive amounts of data as a by-product of their activities. Leading-edge companies in every industry are using analytics to replace intuition and guesswork in their decision-making. As a result, managers are collecting and analyzing enormous data sets to discover new patterns and insights and running controlled experiments to test hypotheses.

This course, part of the Analytics: Essential Tools and Methods MicroMasters program, prepares you to understand data and business analytics and become a leader in these areas in business organizations.

It covers the methodologies, algorithms, issues, and challenges related to analyzing business data. It will illustrate the processes of analytics by allowing you to apply business analytics algorithms and methodologies to real-world business datasets from finance, marketing, and operations. The use of real-world examples and cases places business analytics techniques in context and teaches you how to avoid the common pitfalls, emphasizing theimportance of applying proper business analytics techniques.

In addition to cases, this course features hands-on experiences with data collection, analysis, and visualization using Python programs and analytics software such as SAS.

This course includes a significant analytics project.

Learn how to create a culture of experimentation, where data is swiftly gathered to assess business value and drive innovation.

In this course, you will learn how to use Object and Service Oriented design principles and your development team to increase system flexibility so you can efficiently run experiments at the technical level and also refine business processes and models.

Good design enables a capability for experimentation that would otherwise be infeasible as it speeds up learning and decreases the development time needed to realize the necessary technical changes to drive the next experiment. This capability produces an increase in optionality and paths for innovation; and so overall increases business value.

The course, part of both the Digital Product Management and Digital Leadership MicroMasters programs, addresses both the digital (technical) and social (people) infrastructures and the essential interfaces between them. Managing these interfaces requires designing varying capacities to transfer, translate or transform the knowledge being used to develop experiments. This course focuses on two aspects of the social infrastructure:

  1. the capacity of the technical infrastructure to engage user and identify their needs;
  2. the ability to manage the interfaces between the development team and the technical infrastructure over time.

We will focus on how modular design is essential to project, process, and business model experimentation. Most importantly, you will learn how the synthesis of design, management and experimentation can create real business value.

Supply Chains are complex systems involving multiple firms and organizations with different goals and objectives. Additionally, there are external forces and trends that can impact (positively or negatively) a supply chain’s efficiency and effectiveness. Understanding the dynamics and risks within supply chains, both large and small, is key to being a successful supply chain professional. 

This course builds on the fundamental models introduced in SC1x and the design trade-offs covered in SC2x. It is essentially a capstone in understanding how to successfully model, design, and manage a supply chain in any industry. We will divide the course into three sections. 

First, we will introduce the field of System Dynamics. Developed at MIT, system dynamics is an approach that examines and models complex systems that feature interacting, non-linear, and dynamic elements. The objective is to better understand the underlying features of a complex system and to recommend policies and other actions to improve overall performance. 

Second, we will explore the concepts of supply chain risk. Supply chains are subject to a wide number of potential disruptions – from both within and outside of the supply chain.  Students will understand how supply chains can be better designed and managed to not only mitigate the downside of supply chain disruption but also to leverage and capture any upside. 

Finally, the students will engage in a series of more extended case studies and simulations that demonstrate these complex relationships. Actual case studies and examples from companies will be used to help students better prepare for actual situations.

This Supply Chain Fundamentals course is part of the MITx MicroMasters Credential in Supply Chain Management, offered by #1 ranked SCM Master's program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The CTL.SC1x Supply Chain Fundamentals course provides the foundational skills for supply chain management and logistics. You will learn how to develop and apply analytic tools, approaches, and techniques used in the design and operation of logistics systems and integrated supply chains. The material is taught from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on where and how specific tools can be used to improve the overall performance and reduce the total cost of a supply chain. We place a strong emphasis on the development and use of fundamental mathematical models to illustrate the underlying concepts involved in both intra- and inter-company logistics operations.

The main topic areas we will focus on this course are:

  • Demand Forecasting, Planning, and Management
  • Inventory Planning, Management, and Control
  • Transportation Planning, Management, and Execution

While our main objective is to develop and use models to help us analyze these situations, we will make heavy use of examples from industry to provide illustrations of the concepts in practice. This is neither a purely theoretical nor a case study course, but rather an applied analytical course that addresses real problems found in practice.
