Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student is expected to be able to

  • dentify and define logistics resources together with their associated costs.
  • transform a customer’s requirements to a production order, and/or a purchase order in different planning and control philosophies.
  • use the basic concepts of Manufacturing Resource Planning.
  • use the basic concepts of Lean Production.
  • use the basic concepts of the Theory of Constraints.
  • calculate the capacity requirements for a production plan.
  • plan for distribution and transports in a cost efficient manner 

Course content

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.

Teaching and working methods

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.
