Logistics is considered more as “Serial process”, that is more covered with operational activities.

Logistics does not need to „re-invent the wheel“ and may use FMEA tool. The 1st day of the training session explains FMEA standards and recommended process of its creation. Practical workshop is planned for the 2nd training day when each trainee will get a standard Logistics FMEA document and will animate a Logistics FMEA meeting based on a Case Study example.

    way in project pre-serial phases,

LOG-08 Production Logistics

The most missing resource for logistics specialists is time (it does not mean they have much time). When you continue the discussion and ask them what is the proportion of working time they allocate to problem solving, quite often the answer is above 50%. The following question: “What do you do with that?” will terminate the discussion.

Serial logistics functionally also chronologically follows the project logistics. If the project logistics is underestimated, then serial logistics suffers every year after. Often project documentation or information is missing and robust work is replaced by daily operative business.
