Companies are still working in complex and global environment, which cause that structure and numbers of subjects between enterprise and their customers are still changing, extend, complex and cost-consuming. Each successful company need effective, flexible and resistant logistics system. Logistics management is becoming not only through different mode of transportation, handling and other logistics activities, the source of effective supply chain management, but also possible kind of service, which has the priority position of interests of both the professional and practice.Course is focused on complex development of logistics management of company, which leave individual company level of logistics (i. E. management of materials, information, data and finance flows) and move to higher level of supply chain management (or supply network management).

Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will be able to creatively participate in formulation and creation of logistics conception of company. Students obtain the basic knowledge of principles, forms arrangement of logistics structures (inc. how could be manage), which is important for the value creation for the final consumers or each user. Key course knowledge are combination approaches of product-oriented conceptions (i. E. Right Chain Methodology) and strategies (e. g. Postponement); integrated logistics conception, but also approaches how to apply and manage logistics structures through lean, agile, leanagile or sustainable principles. The application of continuous and critical evaluation of logistics conception and updates according to current trends (e. g. Industry 4.0; SMART or autonomous logistics approach) is emphasized.
Students are expected to have the following knowledge and skills when they begin the course: Conceptually-strategic areas of courses (Strategic Management, Strategic Marketing and Business Development, Corporate Social Responsibility Management), categories of value orientation courses (Strategic Production Management, Service Design Management) and cross-sectional area course (Management Information Systems).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 Methods of teaching and teaching staff of Consolidated Version of The Study and Examination Rules of BUT.
The course contains lectures that explain basic principles, problems and methodology of the discipline, and seminars that promote the practical knowledge of the subject presented in the lectures.
The course contains lectures that explain basic principles, problems and methodology of the discipline. Seminars promote the practical mastery of subject presented in lectures or assigned for individual study with the active participation of students. Lectures are based on combination of receptive education methods with activation attributes. Seminars are realized by combination of Problem Based Learning (PBL), Project Based Learning (PRBL) or situational (so-called case) methods, which lead to discussion, active team work or independent student work within the team.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The course is finished by course-unit credit and exam. The written exam has an open book form. The exam contains a task assignment with open questions and a set of closed questions. Final assessment is based on obtained total number of points.
Solution of the semester project has to be submitt at least 1 week before the defense, while late submission is penalized 10 points. Similarly, late or changing the form of submission of partial tasks is penalized 5 points.
The evaluation criteria for the semester project are professional level (40%); application potential (30%); assessment effectiveness and general conditions (20%); formal requirements (10%). All team members participation in final discussion is required. Final discussion evaluation criteria is readiness; completeness of responses; solution orientation; scope and discussion.
Completion of the course:
The evaluation of the course is based on the systematic, continuous work of the students during whole semester.
The course assessment is based on semester project(s) (max 50 p.), project presentation and discussion (max 10 p.), active selected topic seminars/lectures solution (each activity 1 p.); additional activities (each external lectures 5 p. / excursion 10 p.) and written exam (max 40 p.).
Completion of the course for students with individual study:
The evaluation of the course is based on semester project(s) (max 50 p.); semester project presentation and discussion (max 10 p.) and written exam (max 40 p.). Students should contact the teacher at least 4 weeks before exam date.
Distance Course Completion:
The evaluation of the course is based on semester project(s) (max 50 p.); semester project presentation and discussion (max 10 p.), and exam (max 40 p.). All full time education activities are replaced by adequate online education form. Student’s attendance is checked by selected topics solution or online discussion. The online exam contains set of open and a few closed questions, which focus on practical understanding and application of logistics management approach.
