  • comprehend the relations between production, planning and other functions of the industrial enterprise

 

Course content

Return on investment is the driving force for owners of many industrial companies and it is important to understand how logistics can contribute in this context. Product development and marketing were previously of highest importance to a company’s competitiveness. Shorter product life cycles have increased the exposure to risk, wider use of outsourcing has led to the involvement of more actors, and a more globalized market has made companies more exposed to competitors. In summary this means that logistics are gaining in importance and this course provides knowledge within production logistics, which implies logistics with manufacturing companies as a point of departure.
Production logistics encompasses relations to customers, relations to suppliers and coordination of centralized production or distributed production in terms of a production network. The starting point is flow design based on decoupling thinking which highlights critical properties of flow and guides the decision on selecting approach for planning and control. The general parts of planning and control covers requirements consolidation to compile total market requirements as a combination of forecasts and customer orders, buffers in terms of materials and capacity, basics of scheduling, and aggregate planning for overall dimensioning.
Production logistics is based on the management paradigm that is applied to generate the required return on investment. This course is structured in line with four management paradigms, where two are classified as owner driven and financials based, and two as customer driven and value based. The first class covers efficiency based management with e.g. MRPII, and constraints based with e.g. DBR. The second class covers lean based management with e.g. rate based scheduling, and agility based with e.g. flexible based supply. Finally also so called hybrid systems are covered where methods from the different management paradigms are combined to fulfill more complex requirements from a manufacturing strategy perspective

Teaching and working methods

Lectures and problem seminaries are mainly focused on the fundamental principles and frameworks for production logistics whereas the laboratory session highlights practical aspects.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
