Are there any particular aspects of logistics, transportation, or warehousing that you deal with that could be considered logistics engineering?

I just finished reading your discussion and think you analyzed logistics engineering and system engineering very well and thoroughly. I agree that the two terms are very closely related and use the same scientific solutions to practical design and problems. But I think both have a specific focus that makes both a relevant engineer position in the modern market. Both are very similar but also have key factors that make them different. The logistic engineer has more functioned and problem-solving skills in logistic problems and a system engineer in my eyes are broader on management of complex coordination of systems.  I agree they are both incredibly similar and I have debated on if these two should be considered the same with a question asked in the discussion this week. But I am not sure because I think we could lose focus by combining the two titles due to specific areas of expertise that each engineer design has and their unique application to problem solving of complex systems. I enjoyed reading your forum post and discussing the topic future with you this week.

Logistics engineering is a concept I believe many logisticians utilize without even knowing that it is an actual concept.  Anyone in logistics that deals with the intricate coordination of freight movement has dealt with multiple aspects of the process.  Shipping, receiving, loading and delivery are some primary functions in transportation operations that must be accounted for every day.  Understanding the details that go into each area and creating improvement plans as well as efficiency processes is what logistics engineering is all about.  Are there any particular aspects of logistics, transportation, or warehousing that you deal with that could be considered logistics engineering?

Good morning James! Logistics engineering is a new term and concept to me, I haven’t heard of it before reading about it this week. I believe that having a scientific method for dealing with logistics is a great way to look at the data available and make the best, informed decisions based off that data. It is not that I don’t believe in working with your instinct and when inspiration strikes, but I have learned since I have been in the logistics world, that data and proof rules and if you start making decisions that go against the data, you will eventually find yourself in trouble! Have you heard of logistics engineering before this week’s lesson? Does it seem like a crazy concept to you, or do you think it makes sense in business? Thanks for sharing this week!
