ANALYSIS OF THE COHERENCE OF LOGISTIC SYSTEMS FROM URBAN ENVIROMNENTS USING THE INFORMATIONAL INDICES

Authors

Abstract

The paper introduces a series of analysis models of the flows of materials and products existent inside a logistic system, elaborated according to the entropic and informational indices introduced in the first part of the paper, which are: informational entropy, the quantity of information, the organization degree, the mutual information, the informational energy and the coefficient of informational correlation. The theoretical elements are used in case studies in the second part of the paper, case studies that treat aspects from the domain of logistic management, oriented especially towards the functions of organization, coordination and evaluation of the logistic operations. The models introduced in the paper allow analyzing the structural and functional coherence of the logistic system and its dynamics, from the perspective of the organizational entities’ synergy. By presenting these models in great detail, the presentation of the adapting, organizing and knowledge mechanisms of the logistic contemporaneous systems, characterized by a higher complexity degree, a consequence of their entering in the vast globalization process can be facilitated.
