College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Integrated Logistics in Aviation Management
This course centers on elements of a modern integrated logistics system. The organizational structure, inventory management, principles of warehousing, traffic management, international logistics, and quality management principles as they apply to logistics are key elements. The impact of just-in-time systems and quality management principles on physical distribution and their relationship with integrated package and cargo carriers, advancements in intermodal transportation, and the deregulation of the transportation industry are probed. The characteristics of system design to meet requirements of reliability, maintainability, and supportability are examined, as is the economic feasibility of a logistics system, including Life-Cycle Cost Analysis methods. The explosion of computer technology and its effect on electronic data interchange capability as they influence logistics policies and practices are explored. The use of computer software to solve logistics problems is introduced.

This course is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of Integrated Logistics Support to include: management and organization of physical distribution facilities; transportation as a sub-system of physical distribution; the role of inventory in modern business and how it has been effected by JIT, air cargo and integrated carriers, life cycle cost analysis to determine economic feasibility and assessment of the reliability, maintainability, and supportability of integrated systems, International logistics and quality management principles are contained in the course. Through the use of case studies, students will analyze systems in aviation and apply learned concepts when reporting (oral and/or written) on those systems.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Assess inventory management with emphasis on the logistics of risk involved in the commitment of financial assets on the basis of project events.

2. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of using common, regulated, contract, exempt, and private carriers in the flow of goods and services.

3. Relate the consequences of the deregulation of the transportation industry to current logistics trends.

4. Determine and apply the requirements for a comprehensive logistics and supply chain network.

5. Determine and apply the requirements of materials procurement and strategic sourcing, including the use and application of e-procurement and e-sourcing.

6. Analyze and differentiate various production and planning strategies, including the integration of information technology, as they apply to logistics and supply chain management.

7. Analyze and apply reverse flows and closed loop supply chains as they pertain to logistics and supply chain management.

8. Analyze and assess current and future challenges in logistics and supply chain management, including the need for transformation and the steps that are important to accomplish that objective.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

9. Critically analyze the benefits and challenges that face organizations in developing and implementing logistic and supply chain strategies.

10. Interpret the relationship between logistics and other functional areas in an organization, including manufacturing, marketing, and finance.

11. Evaluate the breadth and scope of a global logistics and supply chain network, including differentiating between domestic and global organizations.

12. Select and demonstrate various methods used to measure logistic and supply chain performance, including an analysis of revenue, costs, service and profit as represented on an income statement and balance sheet.

13. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013).

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
