Comprehensive Logistics. Book · January 2009 with 22 Reads. People are the actors and producers, and at the same time, the customers and beneficiaries of logistics. How we measure 'reads'. The tasks of network management are the design, organization, set up and operation of logistic networks for the supply of consumers and companies with the required goods in due time at lowest costs. This includes scheduling of resources and replenishment of stocks in the logistic chains. As producers, they determine the services, performances and costs.

Modern logistics comprises operative logistics, analytical logistics and management of performance networks. by Timm Gudehus, Herbert Kotzab. This reference-book offers a unique survey of modern logistics.

Modern logistics comprises operative logistics, analytical logistics and management of logistic networks  .

Modern logistics comprises operative logistics, analytical logistics and management of performance networks. Central task of operative logistics is the efficient supply of required goods at the right place in the right order at the right time. Tasks of analytical logistics are to design optimal supply networks and logistic systems, to develop strategies for planning, scheduling and operation and to organize efficient order and performance processes. Logistic management has to plan, implement and operate performance networks and to schedule the orders, resources and inventories. This reference-book offers a unique survey of modern logistics. It contains methods, rules and tools for the solution of a broad variety of problems. The algorithms and formulas can be used for the computer-based planning of logistic systems and for the dynamic scheduling of orders and resources in supply networks. The analytically derived rules and strategies enable considerable improvements of performance, quality and costs. Their practical application is demonstrated by several examples from industry, trade and logistic service providers. An extensive index makes the book a dictionary of modern logistics. The book is written for managers, planners and consultants, for economists and engineers, for theorists and practitioners, for scientists, students and others who are interested in logistics and performance networks.
Reviews about Comprehensive Logistics (3):
Globus
I am very impressed with this book indeed. I have myself taught and researched logistics and supply chain related topics at graduate level - and have been practicing as a consultant in these areas across a number of tier-one companies in consumer goods and retail across the globe. What I find quite remarkable is that this book, more than any other I have come across, combines depth and rigor one expects in an academic treatise with insights drawn from practical application of the concepts. As a researcher turned practitioner, I can say that is a rare and invaluable combination - and makes this book a must read for those who aspire to make an impact in this field.

The book definitely lives up to the title: Comprehensive Logistics. I will admit that I have only worked with a few of the chapters in the book - those related to the recent client concerns I am dealing with. These chapters, e.g. chapter 2 on Organization, Scheduling and Control - including the concepts of physical localization and virtual localization that I have found to be very beneficial in logistics practice, chapter 5 on Strategies for Logistics, chapter 11 on Inventory Management, chapter 18 on Transport Systems - were all very well written, informative and, indeed, comprehensive. I knew a great deal about the topics prior to reading these chapters, but definitely found myself further illuminated by the authors' treatment. And, hence my endorsement of the book.

Final point: the book almost 900 pages with references. So, I was pleasantly surprised that the writing style is not verbose and completely devoid of filler material. In fact, it is very much to the point in its treatment of topics.

Count this reader as impressed. I would unreservedly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning, researching and making an impact in the field of logistics.

In comparison to other textbooks written to support learning and education in the field of logistics this work is unique in several aspects. Among them four characteristics should be especially highlighted.
1. Completeness (scope of topics treated): The authors cover a wide area of issues which are relevant for the design and management of systems in the field of logistics. In this book one can find a critical examination of the capabilities and limitations of modern Supply Chain Management as well as a chart containing information about the aisle width of a narrow aisle stacker. Especially the authors try to overcome the widely practiced separation between economical and technical logistics which hamper many advantages and blocks the access to important potentials and benefits. Because of the mutual interdependencies between these segments the benefits of completeness are more than additive.
2. Level of detail: The granularity of the analysis is impressive. And it often correlates with the constant aspiration for completeness. For instance the authors list up eight different causes for waiting times, eight different manifestations of setup times and seven advantages of single-unit shelf rack stores.
3. Precision of analysis: When reading this book one soon notices that the leading author (Tim Gudehus) has a doctoral degree in physics. The attempt to describe phenomena of the real world in mathematical terms und formulas whenever possible leads to a kind of "minimalism", which gives the text a certain elegance (omitting any redundancy). But at the same time this approach makes the reading very demanding for those readers which are not so familiar with for instance the theoretical backgrounds of probability theory. This is a textbook which requires either an educated reader or teachers who deliver the mathematical backgrounds within a lecture based on this book. On the other hand: for readers who have the required skills at their disposal and take their time to study huge number of formal definitions and functions in detail, the precision of the reasoning delivers insights and results which can hardly be obtained without the formal language of mathematics. For instance, Gudehus needs only a few lines to detect the limits of the practical usefulness of ABC- or XYZ-classifications or to lay open why the capability of a supply chain wide visibility on end customer demands is constantly overestimated and thus popular concepts like Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) in practice deliver disappointing results. Such deductions are often delivered rather parenthetically and in a totally unpretentious manner, which is astounding and sometimes pleasurable taking into account that other authors write long chapters or even books on the same issue ending up in opposite results.
4. Practice Orientation: Although the outer appearance of this book with its seemingly endless numbers of formulas looks rather theoretical, its basic approach is to "offer answers to questions of practical relevance and ...develop methods to solve actual problems". The authors are capable to deliver against this promise. Especially Tim Gudehus, who has written the german predecessor of this work, obviously has benefited from his experience as a consultant in the field of logistics. The anecdotical evidence and the large number of practical examples give the book a high credibility and support its reading. Furthermore the authors sum up their findings derived from formal deductions in short and understandable statements.
With its 823 sides of text this book will probably not be read in one heat. But taken as a work of reference it will deliver its readers useful insights for many years. Therefore it can be recommended as real good value for money. For professionals in the field of logistics it is a must.

In 1999, "Logistics" written by Timm Gudehus was published for the first time in German language. Since then, it became the leading comprehensive standard work in the field logistics and supply chain management. Today the third updated and enlarged edition is available. Decisive for its success within the logistics community is the unique conception of the book:
* The whole scope and variety of logistics are covered. The systematical setup allows to access required information, always concrete, out of more than 800 pages
* Logistical topics, trends and buzz words which are "fashionable", but will be forgotten soon, are consequently ignored.
* The content is not just empirical and describing. In fact cause-and-effect chains and parameters are analysed and explained. Interested readers can go deeply into mathematical formulas and graphics. For all others, the theoretical results are condensed into short, precise and understandable statements.
* Nothing is as practical as a good theory! However, this book is conceived for those who work practical in logistics and supply chain management, within the management or in planning departments. E.g., step-by-step instructions are given how to plan a warehouse or a transportation network. This also includes benchmarks regarding times and performances as well as prices and costs for logistical systems. For another example, the tender process, contracting and controlling of 3rd party logistics providers is described in detail.
Being translated by Herbert Kotzab and revised by both authors, these benefits are now offered to the international public. The resulting "Comprehensive Logistics" is good value for money, even more as it will be useful for many years. Highly recommended for every logistician, from students to senior experts!
