Utilizing these managerial levers optimally during the design, planning, and operational phases requires knowledge of logistics and supply chain methodologies. Our third goal is to give the reader knowledge of these methodologies. Every methodological discussion is illustrated with its application in Excel/5(8).

Create an Area Analysis Schedule You have designed masses to explore a conceptual design for a building. You want to analyze the most cost-effective or profitable mix of uses for each floor of the building. Creating a Schedule to Analyze Exterior Surface Area You have designed masses to explore a conceptual design for a building.   Despite this, the application of MDO during the conceptual design phase is not yet widespread. Advanced Aircraft Design: Conceptual Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsonic Civil Airplanes presents a quasi-analytical optimization approach based on a concise set of sizing equations. Objectives are aerodynamic efficiency, mission fuel, empty Author: Egbert Torenbeek. Design/methodology/approach. The conceptual part of the framework is based on the structured analysis of existing literature. The framework was further developed during an action research (AR) study where the authors developed, implemented, evaluated and improved the measurement system for organizational change : Dag Naslund, Andreas Norrman. The goal of the key project "Design Methodology for Logistics Services" is to help the participating companies with this design task by defining innovative logistics processes by combining logistics services and logistics IT services, making these new processes machine executable, and implementing them.

Our second goal in the book is to convey how these drivers may be used on a conceptual level during supply chain design, planning, and operation to improve performance. For each driver of supply chain performance, our goal is to provide readers with practical managerial levers and concepts that may be used to improve supply chain performance/5().
