Description This unit introduces key logistics processes supported by modern ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems, using an integrated process perspective of the firm. Each process within broader logistics processes provides the basis for executing logistics operations in a range of organisations across manufacturing, service and government sectors. Logistics processes are introduced through key process cycles including manufacturing, planning and control (MPC) in production planning, procurement cycle in purchasing, sales order processing in sales and distribution, and logistics execution. Cross-integration of these process cycles is also illustrated using various integrations among the procurement, fulfilment, production and warehouse management processes. Logistics processes are demonstrated using data, application and technical integration within an ERP system environment.
