Every year, companies launch thousands of new products. Many firms consider innovation of their business although failure rates of up to 80% are not uncommon. In this course we study what it takes to successfully bring products to the market. Specifically, we discuss how companies can produce and supply the new products in a cost-efficient yet customer-oriented manner. The course addresses the operational decisions that lie at the core of this process. Students will practice the mathematical and statistical methods necessary to optimize these decisions.
