Inventory is recognized as an essential asset and a key driver in supply chain management. There are many other resources that also play significant roles in the supply chain. Coordination of inventory and other resources is a central activity for supply chain managers. Sustainability has also developed as a topic of interest along with the increased importance of analytics. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the need for further coverage of analytics and sustainability within supply chain academic programs. Some initial steps in one supply chain academic program will be presented.
