Supply Chain Optimization & Modeling Using Excel & VBA

Presenter: Martin Mirsky, President of Supply Chain Systems, Inc

The presentation will focus on creating supply chain models using Excel and VBA.  Martin has been giving presentations and workshops on advanced planning and scheduling systems for the past 20 years and has recently taken up a campaign to make this type of modeling available to small and mid-sized companies. The easiest way to distribute this capability to the masses is by extending the power of excel by automating models with VBA. 

Martin has tailored a presentation for our chapter and comes highly recommended from a fellow roundtable where he has also presented this lesson.

The Venue:

Alamo Drafthouse - 320 West Las Colinas Boulevard, Irving, TX 75039 

We have secured a perfect venue to provide a BIG screen that you can see, and table space to have your laptop, notepad, food, and drinks... the Alamo Drafthouse in Las Colinas.  Dinner (included in your registration) is a pizza and salad buffet including non-alcoholic beverages.  You may procure drinks from the bar on  your own tab.

September 20th @ National Video Game Museum, Frisco, TX

Presenter: Richard Sherman, Senior Fellow, Supply Chain Centre of Excellence at Tata Consultancy Services

*Note: Registrations are capped at 40 due to space limitations*

Accurate supply chain planning is more difficult to achieve than ever before. The pace of change in products, seasons, and consumer taste is unprecedented. The omnichannel age has brought a new level of complexity to patterns of demand. Manufacturers, retailers, and distributors are finding it increasingly difficult to draw on data from multiple sources and turn it into accurate forecasts. 

So how do we derive order from this chaos of information? 

How do we align all parts of the supply chain to create customer-focused organizations that can quickly adapt to shifting demand?

In this session, we’ll discuss: 

  1. Common pain points and pitfalls for supply chain planners
  2. How the lines between planning and execution are beginning to blur
  3. The benefits of integrating supply chain planning across the organization (integrating units like finance and sales) 
  4. How disruptive technologies will shape the supply chain of the future
