With the Supply Chain Award-Project of the Year, PICS Belgium and VIB aim to bring supply chain projects under the attention of management and executives in Belgian companies and government organizations.
It should stimulate them to invest more in projects that improve the efficiency of their supply chain processes.
Supply chain management is critical to the success of a modern company. The effective management of the supply chain makes it possible to reduce costs, increase productivity and improve service.
In this course we deal with the supply chain fundamentals that are required to effectively manage a supply chain. The teachers apply the principle of “learning through fun”, and use cases, business games and an interactive teaching style.
