Junior Consultant Supply Chain Data Scientist

"Striving for the optimal supply chain and making the difference for your customers. Only when an AIMMS application is up and running will you be satisfied."

How do you reduce the risk of bottles breaking during the production process? What is the most efficient routing of groceries from the distribution centre to customers? Typical supply chain questions you probably already encountered during your study Supply Chain Management, Econometrics or previous experience in Operations Research. As Junior Consultant Supply Chain Data Scientist at Districon, you will solve these questions. Together with a dedicated team, you develop and implement customised (AIMMS) applications. You make the difference for clients in, for example, the food & beverage or retail sector. The solutions you manage support our clients' supply chain processes. Think of a production planning solution for a manufacturer, but also of an improvement of a S&OP/IBP cycle.
