What is Production Logistics ? March 24, 2007

Filed under: Production Logistics — TSBL @ 4:01 pm

The term is used for describing logistic processes within an industry.

The purpose of production logistics is to ensure that each machine and workstation is being fed with the right product in the right quantity and quality at the right point in time.

The issue is not the transportation itself, but to streamline and control the flow through the value adding processes and eliminate non-value adding ones.

Production logistics can be applied in existing as well as new plants. Manufacturing in an existing plant is a constantly changing process. Machines are exchanged and new ones added, which gives the opportunity to improve the production logistics system accordingly.

Production logistics provides the means to achieve customer response and capital efficiency.

      Hi Tavus,

      I prefer giving you some insignts on logistics. See, logistics is actually a subset of SCM or supply chain management. It’s very hard to have only logistics as your carrer as you have to span through the complete life cycle of SCM including production planning, scheduling, material planning and demand planning and logistics is something which will support all the functions. Say if you are working in a manufacturing environment one needs to know about JIT and other quality concepts in work in a logistics JIT environment. The other part if documentation , especially if you are sourcing goods from abroad. You need to learn the various import documetation you need to deal with.

      if you are further looking to enhance your skills by education please refer to APICS – CPIM, CSCP and CPSM from ISM. Specifically related to logistics you can look into ASTL ( American society of transportation and logistics ) as they offer two certifications including PLS and CTL.

      I hope you might find this information useful.

      Thanks and good luck for your future carrer.

      Regards
      Vinodh
