Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

None


Course Description

In this course you will learn how a systems approach can be used as the philosophy and practice to solve logistics problems and integrate logistics function with other management functions in an engineering oriented organisation. You will explore concepts in integrated logistics support, system design and analysis of logistics systems, development of logistic support and its requirement analysis, equipment supportability. You will develop skills in data collection from a variety of logistics activities and points of operation, personnel organisation and communication system. 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

 

 

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:

1. Needs, Context and Systems

1.1. Identify and assess risks (including OH&S) as well as the economic, social and environmental impacts of engineering activities


2. Analysis

2.1. Comprehend and apply advanced theory-based understanding of engineering fundamentals and specialist bodies of knowledge in the selected discipline area to predict the effect of engineering activities

2.2. Understand the scope, principles, norms, accountabilities and bounds of contemporary engineering practice in the specific discipline

3. Professional Practice

3.1. Apply systematic approaches to the conduct and management of engineering projects

4. Research

4.1. Develop creative and innovative solutions to engineering challenges

 


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

Upon successful completion of this course you should be able to:

1. Apply fundamentals of logistics engineering, design supportability criteria, support infrastructures and physical support resources for the management of logistics support function.

2. Apply theory and practice of availability, reliability and maintainability analysis in the design of integrated logistics support systems to improve supportability.

3. Analyse and quantify risks in logistics support using mathematical techniques and develop approaches to mitigation of the analysis outcomes.

4. Identify and analyse, within the content of the logistics support system, all functions such as material flows, distribution, manpower and personnel, training and training devices, and the sustaining of life cycle maintenance, operation and support, for the development of improvement plan.


Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities throughout the course include: Lectures, tutorials, presentations, group discussions, project work, project work and field examples


Overview of Learning Resources

 

All lecture Powerpoint slides, model answers of exercises in the lectures and tests in previous semesters are available from the course Blackboard (accessed via myRMIT). Multimedia files related to the topics will also be uploaded to the respective weekly folders. Except for lectures from guest lecturers (due to copyright restrictions), all lectures in this course will be recorded on Blackboard Collaborate. 

There is a prescribed text. A list of journal articles will be used as reading materials.  Copies of these articles can be obtained from RMIT Library journal subscriptions.
