Abstract:

Logistics costs are the summation of all costs associated with the four facets of logistics procurement, supply, transportation and maintenance. Optimization of one of these logistic facets can result in the suboptimization of total logistics costs. The thesis evaluates the effect of a change in maintenance concept in the management of nickel cadmium batteries. It evaluates logistics costs during two phases of management and projects costs based upon a third management concept. Graphic presentations serve to illustrate the effect of these management changes on total logistics costs. Conclusions are drawn and recommendations made to improve logistics management. Author
