Publications about the project
Many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) miss their logistics objectives. In science and practice there is a growing recognition that the problems of production planning and control (PPC) cannot be solved only by the development and use of software tools. PPC systems usually have limited degrees of freedom for carrying out the tasks given to the employee. Many methods of PPC systems have the potential of influencing the behavior and performance of employees. The development of a logistics-oriented incentive system can support the logistical goal achievement of SME. Aligning incentives on operational logistics objectives anchors the objectives in the employees’ personal consciousness and everyday commitment the employees’ actions to support the logistics performance on the production level.
