The Trident Session Long Project (SLP)

The Trident Session Long Project (SLP) is, in fact, a session long project. However, each the four discrete assignments is uploaded and graded separately. The purpose of the project is to embed the concepts of the course in a real-world example of your own choosing. Pick an organization to examine throughout the course. It may be one you work for, or have worked for but in any event, it should be one you’re familiar with, and about which you’re able to collect information. It’s particularly important you be able to collect information about the following logistical functions: Facilities layout and warehousing (Module 1) Product distribution (Module 2) Logistical quality control (Module 3) Reverse logistics (Module 4) A few words about each of these broadly-defined functions may be helpful. Facilities layout and warehousing, from the logistical point of view, is primarily concerned with the temporary storage, management and retrieval of materiel received in advance of immediate requirements, and products either awaiting sale or being held for customers in advance of agreed-upon delivery dates. Product distribution is the process by which the goods and services created by the organization are made available to users. Logistical quality control is the process of monitoring logistical processes, identifying problems, and resolving them. It’s a continuous process. Reverse logistics pertains to the organization’s involvement in the movement and disposition of goods following their use by customers. This includes such topics as customer retums, collection and disposal of wastes, and recycling. For the first SLP, please address the following topics:

1. The name of the organization

2. Its primary business or mission

3. Why you chose this business 4. How it handles its warehousing functions
