Architectures of logistics processes and systems
AbstractLogistics management requires a lot of ideas, methods, and tools to control the logistics processes and systems. Analysing, planning, implementing, and mon- itoring logistics activities without a map of the controlled processes is especially difficult, if not impossible; to do it, an idea of how to transfer the reality into the map is needed. It is therefore worth asking about the method of performing that task, and thus about the so-called architecture from the scientific point of view. In an attempt to answer these questions, based on modelling methodology, the paper discusses three frameworks: ARIS, IDEF, and Zachman. The research results are models of forecasting and simulating of logistics processes and the conclusion is that architectures are of great importance as they enable the creation of maps, models, schemes, procedures, instructions, etc., which are necessary for effective logistics management.
