Summary

The design of facilities, warehouses, and material-handling systems as well as the management of logistics operations significantly impact the success of industrial projects. Facility Logistics: Approaches and Solutions to Next Generation Challenges explores recent developments in the technology, industrial practices, and business environments of facility logistics.

The book first discusses the main trends impacting facility logistics operations, including visibility, security, flexibility, labor, globalization, and sustainability. It then examines the functionalities and capabilities of warehouse management systems (WMS) and outlines a comprehensive yet simple method for the quick assessment of warehouse performance. The following chapters present a set of solutions to emerging challenges in the design and management of facility logistics, along with procedures to better plan and manage the logistics activities within a production or storage facility. The final chapter reviews educational resources and offers examples of how multimedia tools can be used to develop new teaching material.

With more globalization and outsourcing occurring as well as a greater emphasis on facility sustainability, new facility logistics challenges have emerged. By evaluating the impact of these issues on facility logistics, this volume helps you improve the design and management of your facility.
