The aim of the course is to:
The course focuses on process design and execution: operations, particularly those within facilities (internal logistics). External and internal logistics are heavily related and, even stronger, interdependent. We will address such questions as: what is the impact of a company’s distribution structure on the internal logistics system, and vice versa? What storage systems should be used under which circumstances, what handling systems, what is the best layout, which information systems are appropriate, and what is the resulting system performance in terms of, for instance, throughput, utilization and order flow times? Besides matters of system choice, operational storage and order picking strategies are also discussed.
