2.4 Specialisation LS - Logistics Systems

About

Supply chains may consist of closed (industrial) and/or open transport networks (e.g. road networks, nodes) and require hence an understanding of both 'classic' transport engineering and logistics, but also of supply chain engineering.

This specialisation deals with the technical and functional design, the control and optimisation of transportation and production systems. It includes all modalities, networks, terminals and equipment.

Fulfilment of customer demand can only be realised with the right logistics systems. Setting the right requirements for the design of these logistics systems is of vital importance. Logistics analysts need to understand and be able to use methods to analyse the important functionalities of business systems and how they align with other business systems in demand and supply chains. Logistic designers need to be able to apply design methods to engineer the physical network structures and the organisational structures to create and sustain such supply chains.
Courses are included on both transport and production systems as well as on logistics systems and supply chains.
