Reality demonstrates that logistics is part of our lives. In any case, either as a manager or as a mere employee, we are all confronted with ongoing interaction with suppliers, manufacturers or consumers of goods and services. Moreover, all of us are connect at the same thing, the desire to meet our consumption needs on time in the most favorable quality / price conditions.
In the context of economic development, the training of specialists in global logistics management, capable of responding to the challenges of the ever changing economic and social environment, has a very important role to play. In industrial logistics, a role becoming more and more important is a comprehensive understanding of the Supply Chain and the treatment of the logistic issues like an integrating flow of physical goods, information flow and financial flow. Thus, any software’s that are dealing with SCM (Supply Chain Management) try to assist the companies with the best information technology to achieve the global challenges in the field of production and services. As a segment of the ERP (Enterprise Resources Planning), SCM systems win a strategic role for improving efficiency and customer satisfaction in the field of production and services.
This paper highlights the importance of logistics and, on the other hand, the role of ERP software solutions and how to communicate within an automotive company. Considering the huge number of subcontractors in automotive industry an important role in a collaborative logistic strategy become strategic goal and also indispensable. From the point of view of technical education of the students enrolled in engineering faculties the knowledge of the software’s assisting the production, purchasing and distribution of the goods in this field is a must. Many universities have recognized this need and the importance of using ERP software packages as a unitary flow of goods and services from raw material suppliers to the end customer.
In this paper, the approach adopted is to develop a course that integrates the SCM, within a company using the ERP software for the supply chain simulations any time when it is possible to make an application with a software that is used in industrial environment ( SAP, System 21 RP or similar). For example is interesting to have a IDES (International Demonstration and Educational System in SCM-SAP) for simulating a business in the field of production or services. Thus, in the curricula of the “Industrial Logistics” master program we try to implement applications that are simulating the complete logistic supply chain for a certain computer-integrated production.
The course aims to understand interdependence relationships between enterprise compartments and mapping of real-world relationships and translating into Info System 21 RP and SAP software. The case studies applications from companies are simulated using the software mentioned above.
