ULearning delivers expertise in the area of Supply Chain Management.

As part of the annual Supply Chain Management on-campus week, ULearning offered a two day workshop in Business Process Management in the area of Supply Chain and SCOR (Supply-chain Operations Reference) as part of Continuing Professional Education (CPE).

 This industry focused event on current supply chain trends took place over two days on the 5 the 6 of October in UL.  This course provided an in‐depth understanding of a de‐facto standard and proven tool for supply chain efficiency and was led by Mr. Michael Ginap, a world renowned experienced coach, trainer and expert supply chain management with over 30 years’ experience in practice both in manufacturing industries as well as logistics services.
Participants at this workshop experienced the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR®) model’s framework, how to interpret it, and how to organize a typical supply chain project “end‐to‐end”. 
 
As part of this on-campus week CPE invited industry leaders, supply chain practitioners  and decision makers to a ULearning Supply Chain Seminar titled  “Decision Making in Modern Manufacturing: Using Predictive Simulation Modelling in Decision Making” on Tuesday 6th October.
This expert talk and demonstration focused on the industrial context and the future trends around decision making in a manufacturing and concluded with a demonstration of open source simulation software and an open discussion between attendees and the experts present including Michael Ginap,  Dr. Cathal Heavey  and Mr. Georgios Dagkakis both  from UL’s Enterprise Research Centre.
 
Dr Heavey focused on three themes, the application of simulation to solve system design and operations problems; research on simulation application and supply chain research and Mr. Georgios Dagkakis’s  demonstrated  Discrete Event Simulation and decision support in manufacturing environments using open-source tools funded though the DREAM.
This is an EU funded project, which  focused on the coding, maintenance and use of industrial cases in an open-source simulation library- ManPy.
Speaking at the event Michael Hennessy Education Programmes Manager with ULearning noted that “Given the extent of Ireland’s dependence on multinational companies and export markets, it is vital that everything that can be done to give Irish based companies’ real competitive advantage.
Effective and efficient decision making within the supply chain is a key performance indicator that this seminar has helped industry address.  It is a further indication of the strong relationship that Industry has with the University of Limerick that we are able to bring people from across the world together for this event to share the industrial experience, the solution focused research and personal experiences that address the important issue of decision making within supply chains.
