Topics

Module 1: Fundamentals of Supply Chain Management

In this module, you will understand the basic concepts in managing the flow of materials through the entire chain from the initial supplier to the end-user in different operational contexts of the aerospace industry. You gain exposure to leading practices from other sectors and state-of-the-art advancements in manufacturing and distribution.

Module 2: Aerospace Supply Chain Strategy, Design, and Compliance

Leading intensive supply chain operations requires a firm understanding of strategic choices, trade-offs, implications, and unforeseen consequences. This module focuses on strategic management and leveraging insights from external factors, such as market signals, network interactions, contested arenas, and industry forces at work.

Module 3: Leading Implementation and Operations

Prepares you for the execution expectations and hazards when operating in a unique environment with demanding stakeholders, including policymakers, regulators, military, industrial customers, and even the public consumer.

Who Should Attend

This program is ideal for mid-career supply chain professionals who have college degrees in business, supply chain, or engineering disciplines. Additionally, professionals transitioning into supply chain functions or are on embedded teams, such as finance, engineering, or technicians. Active military or veterans, with experience in logistics and operations, should strongly consider this certificate. 

Organizations can further customize this intensive program for specific objectives or delivery requirements, such as timing, or sequencing. LASC is free from constraints of typical academic calendar terms, so scheduling options are flexible and can be tailored for location specificity for the US or abroad.
