AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

This course will focus on material flow along the supply chain, from source through the industrial process up to the final customer, and back toward responsible and sustainable disposal, reuse or recycling. The main focus will be on: production planning and control, internal logistics and external logistics (feeding and distribution) including warehouse design and operation, packaging and after sales services.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course deals with the topic of internal and external logistics applied to the industrial manufacturing industry. Both calculation/optimization models and simulation models are presented. The course also addresses the issues of designing transport networks and the mechanical design of internal transport systems from an operational and structural point of view.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Assignment: development of a model MRP (MRP)

 

Part 1 – External logistics

• Problem of the logistic nodes location choice, analytical methods and multi-objective choice criteria

 

Assignment: Location of a Production Plant (FLL)

 

• Mathematical programming elements for logistics: capacitated network flow (transshipment), transportation, assignment, shortest path, maximum flow, minimal spanning tree, and traveling salesman problems.

Exam description


The exam provides for a single evaluation of each of the following elements, the grade being the sum of the individual evaluations:

1. The delivery of student's calculation reports related to Assignments.
2. Oral discussion of an in-depth report on one of the lessons discussed
3. A multiple-choice test on all subjects covered by the course.
4. Evaluation of the frequency of teaching activities (lessons and exercises) proposed in the classroom
