Book Description
The definitive guide to supply chain philosophy, strategy AND the practicalities of logistics and distribution. The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management is a step-by-step guide to setting up and managing supply chains to add maximum value to the organisations they serve. Benefiting from the author team's years of practical field-based experience in some of the most challenging environments across the world from developed economies to third world countries and war zones, this is a book that will enthuse students and be an invaluable desk reference throughout the careers of practitioners. Packed with worked examples and real-world data The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management offers complete coverage on all the key aspects of distribution, logistics and supply chain planning and management with clear and straightforward explanations. This is not a compilation of work drawn from a disparate collection of research papers and miscellaneous projects but a logical and complete holistic view of how supply chains fit together including the detailed, nitty gritty of the distribution and logistics. Globalisation, increased competition and new technologies have all changed the landscape in which supply chains operate. This fully revised 6th edition of The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management provides solutions to the key challenges. With new material on international freight forwarding, environmental best practice, cool chain, intermodal shipping and outsourcing and a new, detailed index of contents this is the ultimate study/reference companion. New online resources including PowerPoint lecture slides (tables, images and formulae from the text), glossary of terms, weblinks, blog articles, video interviews and infographics.

Book Description
Die Simulation spielt in der Produktentstehung eine stetig wachsende Bedeutung. Aktuelle Technologien wie der Digitale Zwilling und der Digitale Schatten, Augmented und Mixed Reality, Künstliche Intelligenz und synthetische Lernumgebungen, wissensbasierte Konfiguratoren und webbasierte Simulationssysteme sowie die Erweiterung der Verhaltensmodellierung auf alle physikalischen Domänen sind spannende Themen, die auf der ASIM-Fachtagung Simulation in Produktion und Logistik 2021 präsentiert und diskutiert werden. Die ASIM präsentiert die größte europäische Fachtagung zur Simulation in Produktion und Logistik nur alle zwei Jahre. Wissenschaftliche Forschungsbeiträge und interessante Anwendungsberichte aus der Industrie zeigen aktuelle Entwicklungen und zukunftsweisende Trends zu simulationsgestützten Ansätzen zur Optimierung der Markteinführungszeiten, der operativen Exzellenz und der Ressourceneffizienz. Diskutiert werden technische Möglichkeiten und organisatorische Voraussetzungen zur Nutzung digitaler Modelle in der Planung und im Betrieb von manuellen, automatisierten und hybriden Fertigungs- und Logistikprozessen. Der vorliegende Tagungsband umfasst die Beiträge der 19. ASIM Fachtagung „Simulation in Produktion und Logistik“ (SPL 2021), die aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie als digitale Tagung durchgeführt wird. Kernthemen der Konferenz bilden neue und weiterentwickelte Simulationswerkzeuge und deren fortschrittliche Nutzung zur Vorhersage und zur Rückverfolgbarkeit des Verhaltens sowie zur Verbesserung der Leistungsfähigkeit von Maschinen, Anlagen und komplexen Systemen. Zunehmende Schwerpunkte sind die tragende Rolle der Modellierung und Simulation für die Digitalisierung sowie der Einsatz von datenbasierten Methoden, der Künstlichen Intelligenz und des Maschinellen Lernens.

Approaches To Enhance The Performance Of Simheuristic Methods In The Optimisation Of Multi Echelon Logistics Distribution Networks by Majsa Ammouriova

Book Description
Management of logistics distribution networks is a challenging task. Decision-makers rely on logistics assistance systems that recommend actions to optimise the networks. These systems can be based on simheuristics to benefit from metaheuristics in exploring possible solutions and on simulation for modelling the networks. This book presents three approaches to recommend promising solutions to optimise the networks with fewer simulation runs. The first approach utilises information from the network to guide the search of metaheuristics. In this approach, domain-specific information is defined and assigned to actions. The metaheuristic algorithm utilises this domain-specific information to find more-promising solutions. The second approach is reducing the number of possible solutions by grouping actions with respect to their domain-specific attributes. Here, the smaller solution space decreases the number of required simulation runs. The last approach looks for equivalent solutions that cause the same changes in the network. This approach aims to skip unnecessary evaluations and, thus, simulation effort.
