Course detail

Logistics of Transport and Handling Systems

FSI-DLDAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course in Logistic of Transport and Handling makes students acquainted with logistic services and costs and with their influence upon the effective functions of transport-handling systems. Utilization of a computer support for the simulation of transport-handling processes.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will obtains the principle knowledge of logistic functions in transport and handling with materials. Students will be able to determine suitable logistic coefficient and to execute the calculation of logistic costs and outputs. Students will learn the principles simulating simple transport and handling processes using numerical software.
