Production Logistics

Production systems are special performance systems which transform input material into physical goods. They are central parts of the business networks of manufacturing companies. As logistic networks supply the input and distribute the output of production systems, production and logistics are closely interrelated. Production planning without taking into account logistics is as incomplete as logistics without considering production.
