Abstract : The paper proposes an approach to the design of model based large scale systems to support logistics decision making. First, several frameworks are presented to classify logistics decisions which suggest the essential characteristics a logistics system should possess. Subsequently, a critical review is offered of the current methodology and system development in the field of logistics. Finally, an approach is given to facilitate the design and implementation of logistics decision support systems. (Author)
