The content could be better by having more real life problem. Nevertheless, the explanation of the concept is outstanding and would worth the time spent.

I'm working as consultant in inventory mgmt./optimization modules of SCM for more than a decade. Going through this course helped me to relate a few things why we're doing things in certain way in the job and also able to come-up with a few ideas how can we improve the current situation. I highly recommend any person who is interested/working in SCM to go through this course. Instructor explained the concepts in an easily understandable way.

Immense cours, à la fois large et profond, couvrant aussi bien des sujets liés à la production industrielle qu'au domaine des services, sujets qui ont tendance à s'imbriquer dans les entreprises du monde actuel. Quelques problèmes auxquels je n'aurais pas pensé comme pouvoir calculer et mieux gérer la longueur d'une file d'attente sont abordés. Quelques notions de statistiques sont à réviser comme la distribution d'une loi normale, rien de bien méchant. Une attention particulière a été accordée à la prise en compte dans la gestion des opérations du thème sensible du développement durable. Si comme moi vous ne maîtrisez pas la compréhension orale de l'anglais mais que vous le lisez sans difficultés, les transcriptions des vidéos permettent de lire le texte avant de regarder la vidéo. Je remercie Monsieur Mahadevan de son talent et de son partage de savoir et j'ai d'ailleurs acheté son livre car je crois que j'y trouverai bien des lumi...
