December 2016. We had recently moved with my wife to a new flat in Moscow. I had just finished my Master Black Belt certification in Six Sigma from MSI (read about this in coming posts) and was looking for the next course. The situation at my work was quiet and boring, I hated that feeling, that my brain is under-challenged. I was looking for some information about process optimization (I worked as a Process Engineer at that time) when I found a Micromster's offering on edx from MIT. After reading a short introduction I took CTL.SC0x Supply Chain Analytics and immediately paid a certificate (150$) and have never regretted it.
This was my 6th course in MITx series. I remember that day. A slight twilight behind the window indicated the end of a decently hard working day. We had just finished a massive (60 pages) review paper on some polymeric stuff with my colleagues, when I came across this wonderful, as I thought, opportunity. MIT had launched a MicroMaster's program in Principles of Manufacturing and the first course was dedicated to the statistical process control. "Here we are",- came into my mind. God, if I only knew.
