Basics of Logistics for Engineers Training Course

Basics of Logistics for Engineers is a 2-day training course surveys operations research models and techniques developed for a variety of problems arising in logistical planning of multi-echelon systems, multiechelon inventory optimization, inventory levels holistically across the supply chain, impact of inventories at any given level or echelon on other echelons.

Learn about techniques and procedures involved in designing and planning a closed-loop supply chain in a comprehensive structure. design and planning issue of a comprehensive closed-loop supply chain network.

There is a focus on planning models for production/inventory/distribution strategies in general multi-echelon multi-item systems.

Participants will learn how to connect the dots from early engineering design decisions to their ultimate sustainment impacts. Engineering and Logistics are tightly bonded in the effective accomplishment of affordable sustainment of any product.

In order to design and produce cost effective products, engineers must employ a thorough understanding of logistics principles in the earliest stages of design. This ensures that design parameters such as Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) are taken into account early in product life cycle where small investments of funds yield very large savings throughout the service life of the product. Sound logistics insight also allows for proper assessment of how design parameters address operational effectiveness and suitability requirements, such as interoperability and human systems integration, which ultimately increases usability for the warfighter.

Topics include:

  • Designing and analyzing the systems employed in distributing goods and services.
  • Scientific and mathematical principles of engineering to the process of distributing goods and services in order to build a more efficient infrastructure
  • Evaluation of all aspects of methods of distribution (typically called a supply chain) with the ultimate goal of improving efficiency
  • Vehicle routing problems
  • Dynamic lot sizing inventory models
  • Multi-echelon, multi-product, and multi-period in a mixed integer linear programming framework
  • Stochastic and deterministic multi-echelon inventory systems
  • Bullwhip effect
  • Pricing models
  • Integration problems arising in supply chain management
  • Probability and linear programming

Methods of Learning

Basics of Logistics for Engineers Training Course will be conducted through an immersive workshop to include, lectures, case studies, exercises, and simulations. Textbooks for each student and other training material will be be provided by the TONEX as part of the training.

Target Audience: The intended audience for this course is newly hired and intermediate level engineers, technicians, analysts, operation, PM, logisticians, and supervisors.
