Logistics Management ZAE203


You will be introduced to a wide range of management concepts that ensure the flow of materials, products and services between suppliers and manufacturing and engineering enterprises. This entails gaining a general understanding of systems and processes that are used to manage procurement, ‘best value’ product and service sourcing, ethical supply chains, distribution networks, transportation, contingency planning, stock control and warehousing, quality, risk and health and safety management, commercial and supplier relationships, and standards, regulatory and legal compliance. You will be supported by a substantial online learning resource that will enable you to extend your current level of understanding in these areas of knowledge through a combination of self-paced and formally assessed tasks. You will also have an opportunity to observe logistics operations in an industry setting to gain insight into how enterprises apply key aspects of these management approaches in practice. You will assess the extent to which these practices are supported by outsourcing arrangements, management systems and automated systems in different industries.
