Basic Principles of Modeling Logistic Operating Curves -- Traditional Models of Production Logistics -- Deriving the Logistic Operating Curves Theory -- Basic Laws of Production Logistics -- Applications of the Logistic Operating Curves Theory -- Practical Applications of Bottleneck Oriented Logistic Analyses -- Applying the Logistic Operating Curves Theory to Storage Processes -- Applying the Logistic Operating Curves Theory to Supply Chains -- Conclusions.
This book comprehensively encapsulates for the first time the fundamentals of modeling Logistic Operating Curves for production and storage processes including how they can be derived and calculated based on standard operating data. Logistic Operating Curves solve the dilemma between conflicting logistic targets and open up the frequently hidden potential of the throughput time and WIP without requiring excessive restructuring or capital expenditures. Based on this knowledge a variety of useful tools and practical applications are presented and discussed.
