OVERVIEW

This Course deals with Industrial Logistics and it aims to provide the General Criteria and Quantitative Methods that support the Design, Re-Engineering, Planning and Management of Logistics Systems. Industrial Logistics teaches how to develop Integrated and Flexible Industrial Logistics Networks integrating Physical Material Flows and Information Streams able to guarantee a High Quality of Products & Service to Customers, the Reduction of Response Time and the Containment of Costs. The Course provide the guidelines to measure the Performance of Logistics and Operations. 

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the fundamentals and quantitative methods that drive design and management of logistics systems, both integrated and flexible, in order to integrate  physical and information flows for ensuring higher level product quality and customer service. This with reduction of response time and costs, together with appropriate operational and management flexibility

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Skills for the attendees include: Overall view of the Industrial Logistics Systems, Analysis and Synthesis Capability on Logistics Networks and Flows, Mastering Elementary Techniques of Calculus and Statistics for Logistics
