The course uses a variety of methods to explain and illustrate the relationships and interdependencies of logistics to its various components. Informal lectures, case study exercises, student presentations, and small group exercises are used to provide students with an understanding of acquisition, sustainment, distribution, supply chain management, the Air Force's Enterprise Logistics Strategy (ELS) and the Enterprise Logistics Information Technology (ELIT) governance, contingency operations, disposition, business process improvement, and competitive sourcing. There is also a logistics simulation conducted that demonstrates the uncertainty in managing a supply chain, even with perfect information, and how this may lead to inaccurate decision making.
