Professional Certificate in Supply Chain Innovation

Optimising the Supply Chain with RPA and Machine Learning

Start Date

15-19 May 2023

Duration

5 Days

Grant

SSG Supported. Extended Training Grant Applicable.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This is a 5-day workshop focusing specifically on skills training in Robotic Process Automation and Machine Learning. This programme applies relevant RPA and machine learning techniques to help businesses move from traditional operations and supply chain models to connected, intelligent, scalable and customisable supply networks. 

It seeks to equip participants with basic data analytics skills and RPA knowledge that can be utilised to improve the efficiency of supply chain management and create effectiveness. 

WHO IS IT FOR?

For professionals seeking to enhance their understanding of logistics and supply chain operations management. Those in career transition who want to gain a quick immersive industry experience will find this program a useful starting point.

COURSE DETAILS

Participants will gain knowledge through highly interactive learning, gradually acquiring their abilities over multiple hands-on practices and projects related to RPA and machine learning. They will subsequently apply the knowledge acquired to help transform their business operations to next-generation operating models.

The course will provide foundational knowledge in the following areas:

  • State of global supply chain and logistics development today
  • Impact of digitalisation on supply chain operations
  • Adoption and implementation of tech solutions such as Robotic Process Automation and Machine Learning

In this program, we will also be exploring the successes/challenges relating to the adoption of emerging technologies in the logistics and supply chain sector.

To add practical benefits, all trainees participating in this course will need to complete TWO project work relating to Machine Learning and Robotic Process Automation. These two projects must be submitted on Day 5 as the final requirement for completing the course and awarding the Professional Certificate in Supply Chain Innovation by Singapore Management University (SMU) Academy.
