This course will present the fundamental quantitative approaches that are used in the design and control of logistics systems, including modeling issues, design concepts, computational considerations, and the use of commercial software packages. This quantitative, or engineering, approach to logistics is meant to complement that of business logistics, which is concerned with the management of logistics processes and relationships.

Note: All assignments should be submitted using Wolfware Classic.
