Aviation Logistics and Supply Chain Management
3
The curriculum within this course focuses on concepts and application of logistics and supply chain management utilized within the aviation maintenance industry to increase efficiency in production and maintenance. The curriculum examines the logistics support from Maintenance Repair Operators (MRO) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) in aviation maintenance operations. Topics include; international collaboration and strategies to improve customer relationships and operational effectiveness within the dynamic aviation maintenance industry.

Students will understand the advantages of developing global logistics partners within the aviation industry. Students will identify the differences between logistics support provided by MRO and OEM sources. Students will recognize the impact and effective consumable supply program has on overall operations effectiveness. Students will understand the impact on the global aviation industry of unapproved aircraft parts and components.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:1. Assess the efficiencies that can be achieved by maintaining a supply of maintenance, repair and overhaul consumable items to support aviation maintenance functions.2. Evaluate and contrast logistics support provided by MRO and OEM providers.3. Appraise the advantages and disadvantages surrounding the outsourcing of component repair to support maintenance operations.4. Develop strategies to gain a competitive advantage through international collaboration on aircraft component overhaul and manufacture.5. Summarize and interpret national and international laws and regulations governing aviation logistics support.6. Evaluate the requirements for a successful program to identify, report and remove suspected unapproved parts and components in the aviation maintenance industry.7. Evaluate the role of financial planning in determining an aircraft logistics sustainability strategy.8. Contrast and compare processes for determining quality international logistics partners who provide supply chain management support to the aerospace industry.9. Develop a quality control program designed to identify trends within the logistics network and provide feedback to logistics partners.10. Assess the importance of customer relations in developing global logistics partners.11. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter.

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.
