Specific course information

The objective of the course is to present the concepts of logistics management and administration of the supply in the current local and global contexts. Basic and advanced topics in supply chain systems, cargo transport, storing and distribution in supply chains are presented. Also, the multi-criteria AHP tool is used in the making of decisions about cargo transport. Finally, the techniques to model distribution routes will be studied.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To identify the concepts of supply chain and logistics management and their scopes in corporate decision making.
  • To apply the quantitative methodologies to design supply networks.
  • To apply the models to determine the capacity and location of facilities.
  • To apply the models and methodologies to design warehouses and distribution centers.
  • To evaluate the distribution of goods and services in relation to the choice of the transport mode, particularly in routing problems.
