Humanitarian Logistics (MTTN45)
Since the Asian Pacific Tsunami in 2004, humanitarian logistics/SCM is receiving continuously more attention in research and practice. The course will give students fundamental and advanced knowledge about the design, management and measurement of supply chains in the humanitarian context with focus on disaster preparedness and response. The scope of the course is to provide an overview of the specific context of humanitarian logistics and a set of important available concepts, models and tools. The course will furnish an understanding of the important role of logistics and SCM in the humanitarian context. It will also convey the knowledge and skills to methodically analyze needs, and consequently to design, manage and measure the supply chain. The course is partly developed together with practitioners who have experience from many big operations during the past 15 years and is taught in English in an interactive style providing 'hands-on' knowledge of SCM in disaster response.
