The logistics sector must make use of the new technologies in order to increase the performances respecting the environmental, social and economic needs. In this framework, the digitalization of logistics and supply chains with the 4.0 technologies and the training of people in supply chain management (Logistics 4.0) is also inevitable.
In this context, the motivation of Slog4.0 project is hidden in the answers to the following questions: How can HE keep pace with this unprecedented level of change? What does a future-proof curriculum look like? How can we modify the curriculum regarding Industry and Logistics 4.0? How can we prepare students for a sustainable and green future?
Within the Slog4.0 project, we aim to train a new generation of advanced workers for the logistics sector, with a sustainability-oriented mind-set and a full set of skills referring to the Industry 4.0 paradigm. The project is planned to increase the digital capacities of higher education institutions and to support sustainable and green logistics for the future reshaped by pandemic and climate sensitivity. SLog4.0 project is designed to overcome the difficulties of putting together expertise, knowledge and skills to create a course that is aimed at providing an advanced training to HEI students in order to support the green and digitalization processes in logistics.
a set of Design Principles, developed after having conducted a detailed training need analysis, to be intended as the principles on which to build the multidisciplinary curriculum (topics, learning outcomes, duration, etc.).
a training course, whose expected architecture is the following: Module 1: Logistics 4.0 in smart society; Module 2: Sustainability in Logistics 4.0; Module 3: IIoT: adopting 4.0 for green logistics; Module 4: Green challenge.
