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.

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.

Many natural and man-made structures can be modeled as assemblages of interconnected structural elements loaded along their axis (bars), in torsion (shafts) and in bending (beams). In this course you will learn to use equations for static equilibrium, geometric compatibility and constitutive material response to analyze these structural assemblages.

This course also provides an introduction to behavior in which the shape of the structure is permanently changed by loading the material beyond its elastic limit (plasticity), and behavior in which the structural response changes over time (viscoelasticity).

This is the second course in a 3-part series. In this series you will learn how mechanical engineers can use analytical methods and “back of the envelope” calculations to predict structural behavior.  The three courses in the series are:

Part 1 – 2.01x: Elements of Structures. (Elastic response of Structural Elements: Bars, Shafts, Beams). Next session starts October 2017

Part 2 – 2.02.1x Mechanics of Deformable Structures: Part 1. (Assemblages of Elastic, Elastic-Plastic, and Viscoelastic Structural Elements).

 Part 3 – 2.02.2x Mechanics of Deformable Structures: Part 2. (Multi-axial Loading and Deformation. Energy Methods). Next session starts October 2018

These courses are based on the first subject in solid mechanics for MIT Mechanical Engineering students.  Join them and learn to rely on the notions of equilibrium, geometric compatibility, and constitutive material response to ensure that your structures will perform their specified mechanical function without failing.

Pourquoi le lit de la rivière présente-t-il des zones d’érosion et de dépôts ? Comment la rivière évolue-t-elle au fil du temps, parfois de manière très rapide et catastrophique ? L’Homme est-il capable, et a-t-il intérêt à maîtriser les rivières ? Autant de questions qui reflètent l’importance de la compréhension du fonctionnement des rivières.

Face aux enjeux majeurs liés à la problématique de l’eau et plus particulièrement à la gestion durable des rivières, ce MOOC en hydraulique fluviale va vous donner des clés pour comprendre l’équilibre et l’évolution des rivières et leurs interactions avec l’environnement. Cette compréhension joue un rôle primordial pour assurer une gestion responsable de la rivière qui permette d’en tirer profit tout en préservant l’environnement de ses impacts négatifs.

Ce cours résulte d’une collaboration entre experts de plusieurs universités. Durant les quatre semaines de cours, vous serez confrontés successivement à l’étude des sédiments et du transport solide, à la caractérisation morphologique des rivières et aux conséquences – parfois inattendues – des travaux fluviaux.

Au fil des séquences, notions théoriques s’alterneront avec applications concrètes, notamment sur des sites haïtiens et suisses. Afin de consolider vos connaissances, vous serez encouragés à répondre à différents questionnaires ou à interagir concrètement avec les autres participants.

En fonction de votre degré de connaissances dans ce domaine, ce cours peut être précédé de « Hydraulique fluviale 1 – Écoulements à surface libre », qui lui est prérequis.
