Abstract

Engineering-Procurement-Construction project type is widely used in the industry of power generation development, and logistics management has been playing an important role in the execution of especially international power generation projects. Logistics in the area of power generation industry can be a very complicated system, typically involving many subcontractors related to logistical activities, requiring countless operations to be completed as well as deals with numerous interfaces between neighboring operations. With the objective of efficient and effective management and control of the whole logistics process, the paper proposes a "one-item-multiple-code" approach to realize the transparency and traceability of logistics management.
