Methods to Transfer Logistics Knowledge to People in Industry

Abstract
Transfer of logistics knowledge to people can be carried out in a number of ways, in different directions and it can also take different forms from personal contacts in day-to-day work to longterm contracts between the parties. Cooperation is important in order to develop new knowledge. One of the innovations in the area is a "Virtual University" started by a consortium of universities in the Baltic region. It is called Baltic Sea Virtual Campus (BSVC). The idea is to develop a unified system platform which can be used for different study programs of which one is a Master Program in Industrial Engineering which in this case to a very large extent means logistics and logistics related courses. A typical course consists of 80% e-learning and... (More)
Transfer of logistics knowledge to people can be carried out in a number of ways, in different directions and it can also take different forms from personal contacts in day-to-day work to longterm contracts between the parties. Cooperation is important in order to develop new knowledge. One of the innovations in the area is a "Virtual University" started by a consortium of universities in the Baltic region. It is called Baltic Sea Virtual Campus (BSVC). The idea is to develop a unified system platform which can be used for different study programs of which one is a Master Program in Industrial Engineering which in this case to a very large extent means logistics and logistics related courses. A typical course consists of 80% e-learning and 20% face-to-face encounters. In northern Germany there are already some experiences regarding e-learning via the government supported VFH (Virtual University of Applied Sciences) in which 15 universities cooperate. It has run online courses in a computer science program during a couple of years. These are much appreciated by people who want to learn in parallel to their business. The online students differ significantly from on-campus students: they are older, they work, but above all they appreciate the flexibility that e-learning provides. The paper also discusses logistics knowledge transfer through close cooperation between universities and private companies and an interesting question in this case: which are the differences between research work and consulting?
