Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to implement the ideas of the correct dispositional arrangement of objects within the internal logistics and within the correct design of the handling method-MM By completing this course, students should acquire the following skills: - design the logistics system on the basis of documents, including its assessment and verification, - acquire competencies in designing the handling method, - design the layout of the workplace and assess its effectiveness, -assess the suitability of the transport and logistics system in the company and implement logistics auditing and controlling. By completing this course, students should be competent to: - design of the company's logistics system and retrospective assessment of the system's functionality.

Teaching methods

Project work


Systematic Layout Planning (SLP) is recognized throughout the world as the most organized way to develop layout plans. Thousands of projects have been completed successfully using the SLP approach. This course will prepare you to lead layout projects using SLP and to achieve remarkable results in record time.
