After the course the student is expected to:
  • Be able to identify and define logistics resources together with their associated costs.
  • Be able to transform a customers requirements to a production order, and/or a purchase order, and/or a transportation order with in different planning and control philosophies.
  • Be able to choose mode of transportation and plan transports in a cost efficient manner based on decision models.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Basic courses in Logistics, Modelling, Optimization and Simulation.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

The lectures are mainly concerned with theoretical issues and concepts. The exercises are devoted to demonstrations of problem solving. The laboratories give a hands-on experience with treated techniques.

Course contents:
The course contains methods and techniques for planning of resources in logistics at different levels of a production company. Part 1 puts focus on the internal planning in a production company. Production planning and control at different levels with capacity calculations on each level, helps transform the customer’s requirement into a requirement at the supplier. Part 2 contains different methods for planning and control such as Lean production, Just in Time, and Drum-buffer-rope. Inventory control at different levels is also part of the planning in a supply chain. Part 3 focuses on transportation resources. Planning and execution of transports and different modes of transportation are discussed. The role of the forwarding agent is analysed and transportation costs are kept in focus. The course, as a whole, is based on the use of quantitative models at every level of planning and control.
