Doel vak

The course Logistics Analysis is an exciting course that will challenge
you in various ways. By taking Logistics as a point of departure, we
bring together several perspectives and analyze business problems faced
by logistics companies. Taking a logistics perspective will stimulate
you to think about organizations in a different way, bringing together
knowledge from different fields and realizing that this creates
challenges and conflicts that managers need to deal with. You will learn
to systematically describe logistical systems, and identify problems
that emerge in these systems. Moreover, this course offers you a number
of tools that allow you to analyze logistical systems, optimize them,
(re)design them and assess the consequences of suggested improvements.
Important topics such as production management, inventory management,
and maintenance management are addressed, which are essential, hands-on
tools any logistics professional should be able to work with.

Course Objectives:
The overall objective of the course Logistics Analysis is to furnish you
with knowledge and skills to analyze logistics problems in a variety of
industries including manufacturing, transportation and services. More
specifically, we expect that upon completion of the course you are able
- Understand and explain (the importance of) logistical systems and
their complexity;
- Analyze, model, and optimize real-life logistical systems by applying
