Course Description

This course aims to provide key theories and practices in design and management of logistics systems. It prepares you for logistics management positions in manufacturing, warehousing, transportation and distribution firms. The course covers specific areas of distribution, warehousing and transportation, forecasting, inventory control, process management (including lean six-sigma), logistics/supply chain integration and logistics/supply chain performance indicators. The application of analytical techniques to selected aspects of logistics systems is explored in the course. Mathematical models in these areas will be discussed in terms of their ability to represent the problem and usefulness to the managers and practitioners. Case studies will be used to demonstrate the nature of decision making problems managers and practitioners face in logistics and supply chain management in contemporary business environment.
