Architecture of a Knowledge-Based Education System for Logistics

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Nowadays the technologies develop so fast that people cannot keep pace with the increasing logistics knowledge. In order to provide a professional platform of learning modern logistics, moreover, to shorten learning time and improve the learning efficiency, this paper introduces a knowledge-based education system which provides different user groups with well-formed learning contents. The architecture of the system as well as its four main modules is the focus of the paper. Additionally, the learning strategies and the mechanism of formulating learning plan are interpreted. It is a good foundation for the future knowledge-based education system in the logistics and supply chain management.
