Innovative teaching in Supply Chain Analytics

Analytics is regarded as a savior for the SCM, Operations and Management Science majors in many schools. However, there is a danger of teaching analytics to business students as computer science which can be counter-productive and often resisted by students. In this tutorial, we will showcase how analytics may be taught NOT as computer sciences courses but accessible and enjoyable by business students via visualization tools that combine data, business logic and analysis models, without coding but like a point-and-shot camera, to focus on business questions and insights.
