Tableau©, founded in 2003 by the company Tableau Software, is a powerful data analytics tool which enables creating clear visualizations from big data in a short time. For example, these visualizations can be either used to answer complex business cases or for reporting. Tableau© is already used by numerous companies or management consultancies.

Since the summer term 2020, Tableau© is used in the master lecture ‘Supply Chain Management’. In three classes, students learn how to use the software and analyze practical supply chain cases.
