Abstract

The problems of logistics and supply chain management are increasingly aimed at the characteristics and properties of the product itself and their impact on product flow processes and information about them. This is because the optimization of the logistics processes themselves (transport, storage, packaging, inventory management, order processing), without interfering with the product as such, brings less tangible benefits for the company. Analysis of the product susceptibility from the logistics point of view and its logistic efficiency should become a key element of logistics services. Such aspects as optimizing the level of product integration, a high level of standardization, the use of industry standards (industry) or design supporting the product life cycle (Design for Life Cycle – DfLC), etc. are some of the basic principles of the concept. Design for Logistics (DfL) has a number of solutions that indicate the directions of changes in new or modified products, translating into further logistic vulnerability. The paper presents the preliminary research results, selected aspects of product logistic efficiency as an element of design for logistics, in one of the largest furniture manufacturers in the world

Key words: Design, Product, Logistics, Efficiency; DfL
