The Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Davis, seeks temporary instructors to teach one or multiple Decision Making and Management Science courses and Supply Chain Management during the 2014-2015 academic year (likely during the Spring and/or Summer quarters). The course descriptions for Decision Making and Management Science and Supply Chain Management are listed below.
Decision Making and Management Science: Considers management science for decision makers. Topics include an introduction to modeling and decision analysis, an introduction to optimization and linear programming, modeling and solving linear programming problems in a spread sheet, sensitivity analysis and the simplex method, networks, integer linear programming, project management and decision analysis.
Supply Chain Management: Matching supply with demand is a primary challenge for a firm: excess supply is too costly, inadequate supply irritates customers. Matching supply to demand is easiest when a firm has a flexible supply process, but flexibility is generally expensive. In this course we will learn(1) how to assess the appropriate level of supply flexibility for a given industry and (2) explore strategies for economically increasing a firm's supply flexibility. Lastly we will study coordination and incentives across multiple firms in a supply chain. While tactical models and decisions are part of this course, the emphasis is on the qualitative insights needed by general managers or management consultants.
