Logistics relates to the distribution of goods and services from supplier to customer, over a broad range of industries. Logistics courses are often taken by those wanting to work in product placement and goods distribution. Certification, diploma and degree program options are available through study options that include online, distance learning, and classroom education.
Logistics courses explore such topics as product distribution, transportation management, supply chain, inventory control, and customer service. Professionals pursuing logistics courses often work in freight and goods, warehouse distribution, transportation management, store management, product creation and other goods and services related careers. Additionally, due to the increased flow of goods and products globally, many logistics courses are now incorporating business methodologies and international marketing aspects into their courses.

Streamlining Office and Service Operations-Techniques to achieve process improvement on the business side. [+]
Today, enormous amounts of waste exist in office and service operations. Delays, bottlenecks, errors, redundancy, work-arounds, and ambiguity abounds. Non value added work can be as high as 95 percent.
Manufacturing organizations have had great success in applying Lean techniques and trimming time and money. However there are significant challenges and differences in an office operation versus a manufacturing setting. You need a tailored approach to improving office/service operations—but there are Lean tools that you can apply.
Through simulation, cases, and by working on your own processes, you will learn and practice Lean tools to dramatically improve quality and service, while shrinking time and cost. Look at work flow, information flow and job design—not with an eye to eliminating people—but maximizing their effort. You will know which tool to use based on the goal of the effort and problems you face. ... [-]
