The aims of the study course is to provide the knowledge and understanding about modern logistics and logistics information systems, their hardware and modelling tools. Course is also enhancing the skills of simulation and process analysis using EXTEND environment. At the end of the module, successful candidates will be able to understand logistics systems fundamentals, to use simulation software EXTEND for process analysis, to apply GPS Technologies for logistics processes management.
