Course Description:
LG302 Logistics Engineering: An overview of the general area of logistics, its nature, scope, and process; a critical examination of logistics management functions and the interrelationships among strategic support and operational logistics. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: LG201

Educational Philosophy:
The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of active participation between the facilitator and the students based on readings, lectures, discussions, and examinations. The facilitator will encourage each student to express their ideas and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the subject matter.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Discuss logistics in the systems life cycle. The student should be able to exhibit an understanding of how it is applied and at what point in the life cycle.
  2. Define performance based logistics.
  3. Analyze concurrent engineering, configuration management, and system effectiveness
  4. Analyze measures of logistics and systems support, to include supply chain management, warehousing/distribution and maintenance factors.
  5. Describe analysis methods and tools used in logistics and supportability analysis. The student should exhibit an understanding of life-cycle cost analysis, failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA), maintenance task analysis, level of repair analysis (LORA), and reliability centered maintenance (RCM).
  6. Analyze logistics in the production, utilization, sustaining support and retirement phases. The student should be able to exhibit an understanding of how it is applied.


Core Assessment:

Class Assessment:

Homework: Homework will be assigned each week of the course, the assignments will be due the following week. This will consist of essay, questions and problems. (10 Points Each)

Class Participation:  Consists of reading assigned materials prior to class, class attendance, and participation in class discussions.

TESTS:Two tests will be administered during this course. The first test will be the mid-term (Week 4), this will consist of 50 T/F, M/C, Questions and Problems, and essay questions. The mid-term test will be comprehensive, including all material covered through week 4. The second test will be the final exam (Week 8) and will consist of 50 T/F, M/C, Questions and Problems, and essay questions. The final exam will be comprehensive, including all material covered since the beginning of the class. These tests may require the interpretation and solution of problems. Make-up tests will be permitted only when prior arrangements are made and/or when the circumstances are explained to the instructor’s satisfaction.

Grading:

Homework: 20% (8 assignments at 25 pts each -- 200 points total)

Class Participation: 20% (200 points)

Test 1 (Mid-Term): 30% (300 points)
 
Test 2 (Final Exam): 30% (300 points)

Final course letter grades will be assigned as follows:

A 90 - 100% (895-1,000 points)

B 80 - 89.9% (795-894 points)

C 70 - 79.9% (695-794 points)

D 60 - 69.9% (595-694 points)

E 59.9% or lower

The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.

All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
 

Absences: The instructor may excuse absences for cogent reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. What determines an excused absence other than TDY or medical reason is up to the instructor’s discretion. THREE UNexcused absences will result in a grade of F. This is the official Park University policy. Please note that for an absence to be an officially excused absence, (1) I must agree and (2) you must provide documentation (which I have to turn in to the Administrator)


Incompletes are only to be given in place of a grade in extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control (excessive TDY hospitalization, etc.) If a student does not show up for the final, an incomplete is never automatically given. Only if you contact the instructor and provide documentation for an excused absence will an incomplete be given. All incompletes are subject to approval by the Park University Administrator. Students have 60 days from the last day of the term to make up their grade. If not made up, incompletes become “F’s”.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
A credible level of effort appropriate to the course material, which may vary from student to student (e.g., time required for independent study), is expected. Students are expected to initiate communication with the instructor regarding absences, perceived deficiencies in coursework performance, etc. Park University policies regarding attendance and student conduct, which includes academic honesty, will be enforced. Submitting someone else’s work as your own, for example, will not be tolerated. Penalties for violating ethical standards can include receiving an “F” for the course and suspension or expulsion from the College. On the issue of academic honesty/plagiarism Park University policies regarding academic honesty will be enforced. Academic honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence I will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers, or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park. Plagiarism is the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one’s original work – sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
