Supply Chain Logistics
The supply chain logistics management program offered by the University of West Florida College of Business provides students with the core knowledge to manage and market logistics and supply chain.
As the industry continues to grow, UWF is matching trends by finding ways to expose students to innovative ways to improve supply chains. One of the courses within the degree program, a warehousing and terminal management class, provided students with the opportunity to work with UWF’s Sea3D Additive Manufacturing Laboratory in downtown Pensacola, where they were able to design and print 3D models of an innovation pertaining to warehousing and terminal management.
“When we talk about warehousing and terminal management, many people picture the scene at the end of the Indiana Jones movie, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark,’ where there are stacks of boxes everywhere,” said Dr. Scott Keller, professor of logistics, and director of the Center for Supply Chain ManagementExcellence. “From the warehouse and terminal manager’s perspective, it’s all money. We teach students in the class to think about how the movement of goods and materials can achieve the greatest value at the lowest cost for companies and their clients.”
Innovations within a warehouse can improve operations that result in significant efficiencies. In addition to allowing students to have a hands-on experience with technology, data and engineering, the course is designed to teach students to think about 3D technology in terms of logistics.
The collaborative approach between the warehousing and terminal management class and the Sea3D Lab exemplifies the type of research recognized by Pensacola leaders, including former Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward when he proclaimed Oct. 20, 2018 as Supply Chain Logistics Management Day.
Warehousing and terminal management course team projects challenged students to improve the efficiency of a supply chain system. Teams were tasked with creating 3D-printed solutions, created in collaboration with engineering students. Projects were produced at the Sea3D Additive Manufacturing Laboratory in the Museum of Commerce, part of UWF Historic Trust.
