1.2. Faculty Handbook description
In this rapidly changing world, it is increasingly critical that transportation and logistics
professionals have knowledge and expertise of how advanced/intelligent technologies can enhance the safety, security, sustainability and efficiency of their operations.
TRANSPORT AND LOGISTIC SYSTEM.
1.3. Aims and context
The key purpose of this IT&LS Unit is to provide a systems basis to the study of Intelligent
Transport Systems [ITS] and advanced logistics management systems. The Unit includes the study of concepts and applications of relevant information and communications technologies [ICT] including new devices such as radio-frequency identification [RFID], wireless networks and in-vehicle technologies (generally known as Telematics).
This Unit is at an introductory level that covers the full range of intelligent transport and logistics systems and technology and related ICT. It thus provides a basis for understanding the range of issues involved in integration of transport and logistics systems to provide enhanced safety, security, sustainability and efficiency. The Unit is presented in five major segments:
1.0 Introduction to IT&LS: The aims of this segment are for students: to understand the scope of IT&LS; understand the relationships of IT&LS to the overall transport and logistics domain; and to undertake development of IT&LS requirements in the form of Use Cases
2.0 IT&LS Theory and Technology: The aims of this segment are for students to understand and apply abstraction to IT&LS analysis and requirements specification; to understand and specify information and communication technology [ICT] for IT&LS and to understand the capabilities of other relevant technologies for IT&LS applications 3.0 IT&LS for Personal Travel: The aims of this segment are for students to understand the scope of ITS applicability to personal travel, and to understand the techniques and issues involved in applying ICT and other ITS technology to emerging personal travel requirements.
4.0 IT&LS for Freight & Logistics: The aims of this segment are for students to understand the scope of IT&LS applicability to freight transport, storage and distribution; and to understand the techniques and issues involved in applying ICT and other IT&LS technology to emerging international freight forwarding and supply-chain logistics.
5.0 IT&LS Strategic Assessment and Futures: The aims of this segment are for students to understand the strategic positioning of IT&LS for transport and logistics; to understand and apply lessons learned from IT&LS case studies; and to understand the processes and issues involved in an IT&LS project definition and implementation, including proposal evaluation, risk assessment and customer acceptance.
