The Department of Operations & Business Analytics at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Business is pleased to announce its Seventh Annual Workshop on Hot Topics in Supply Chain Analytics, Practice and Technology. This year’s workshop is entitled, “The Retailer: Supply Chain’s Last Mile.”

There continues to be significant challenges and opportunities in managing today’s retail supply chains. This year’s workshop will focus on the interactions between the retailer and upstream members of the supply chain. Retailers are drowning in data but are having a difficult time developing actionable insights.

Join us to hear experts discuss the importance of information and analytics in improving retail performance: forecast accuracy, inventory turns (while reducing out of stocks), assortment planning and pricing optimization. Industry leaders from P&G, Kroger and OfficeMax as well as information providers, such as The Nielsen Co., Market6 and Retail Solutions Inc., will join faculty experts from the University of Cincinnati and the Wharton School (Marshall Fisher, PhD) to discuss the new science of retailing.

The event will be held May 6, 2011, 10AM - 3:30PM with a short reception to follow at the University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner Hall in Cincinnati, OH. Seats are limited and registration is required. There is no registration fee. Attendees who preregister as of April 29, 2011, will receive the 2010 book The New Science of Retailing: How Analytics are Transforming the Supply Chain and Improving Performance by Marshall Fisher and Ananth Raman.
