BMM 125 - Manufacturing Logistics

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: NONE)

Introductory logistics classes familiarize students with the basic concepts of product distribution and the terminology used in the logistics field. Students learn the process of planning effective product distribution and discuss methods of transportation and traffic management techniques. Other topics covered in introductory logistics classes may include inventory control, protective packaging and customer service. This course will use lecture, group work, online simulation and programming to prepare students for certification as a Manufacturing Logistics Technician (CLT) through Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC). This credential requires the successful completion of two exams, the CLA at the midterm and the CLT at the final. Students must pass the CLA exam before they can be admitted to the CLT exam.
