Objectives

The objective of the project is to develop, implement and market a unique modular software system for multidimensional logistics chain design that takes into account the new logistics design needs of European enterprises.

The value of the system for prospective customers is to increase the competitiveness of pan-European manufacturers and their marketing channels through integrating objectives such as eco-awareness, customer service and interactive management into the logistic design process. Another objective is to expand the design perspective from functional (or company-related suboptimisation) to overall logistics business performance indicators. Additionally, LOCOMOTIVE will make also available to managers sophisticated logistics tools which take into account "lean design" philosophy and multiple responsibility for design tasks.
