2. Administering production management of finished products based on forecasts and the orders of consumers.
3. Developing production task schedules for departments and other components that have been approved by the supply and sales services department.
4. Monitoring and setting standards for work-in-process.
5. Participating in the development and implementation of product innovations.
6. Organizing production tasks and operational management of production.
7. Administering quality and quantity control, as well as cost reduction, of finished products.
8. Carrying out marketing research to predict the capacity of a production enterprise.
9. Developing advertising and information activities to promote sales.
10. Identifying potential customers using rapid response to meet demand.
11. Negotiating with potential customers and prepare necessary shipping documents.
12. Organizing the movement of internal commodity flows, including transportation and warehousing.

Logistics and Inventory Management
1. Organizing insurance of failures in deliveries and protection against an increase in purchase prices.
2. Saving on wholesale discounts and on transportation.
3. Increasing production efficiency and customer service.
4. Geographical specialization: the inventory provides geographical specialization of economic units, and the plant needs to take into account the location of material resources and consumers.
5. Resource consolidation allows the production and delivery of each type of product in cost-effective batches that exceeds the current market demand for the product range.
6. Balancing supply and demand: the inventory can ensure production cost-effectiveness if demand changes (for example, seasonal stocks).
7. Protection against uncertainty, this function is performed by an insurance or buffer reserves.
8. Transformation of the production range in accordance with demand - creating the necessary range to fulfill customer orders.
9. Warehousing and storage allows you to equalize the time difference between the volume of output and consumption, and makes it possible to carry out continuous production and supply based on the created inventory.
10. Storage of goods is also necessary in connection with seasonal consumption of some goods.
11. Consolidation and transportation of goods as a means to reduce travel-related costs. The warehouse can perform the function of combining small shipments of several customers until the vehicle is fully loaded.
Urban and international logistics
1. Creation of transport systems, including multimodal systems, transport corridors and transport chains.
2. Joint planning of transport processes on different modes of transport in the case of multimodal transport.
3. Ensuring the technological unity of the transport and warehouse process.

7. Study the prospects of using drones in cargo transportation, warehousing and cargo processing.
8. Study 3D printing (3D logistics) to increase production speed, reduce logistics costs, improve customer focus, reduce contractors in supply chains, and reduce the harmful impact on the environment.
9. Development of logistics information systems (SCE, SCMo, SCEM, SCP, logistics controlling system, business performance management system (BPM)); contractor (transactional) and local logistics systems: ERP, WMS, TMS classes; logistics business process modeling systems (BPMS).
10. Development of solutions for e-business in supply chains: e-Procurement, e-Fulfillment. Study the prospects of creating flexible and dynamic supply chains in the digital economy; increasing transparency and traceability of commodity and information flows in supply chains (SCEM, HVSC), providing digital monitoring of supply chains.
