    The purpose of project LOPEC (Logistics Personal Excellence by continuous Self-Assessment) is to develop innovative software tools to support small and medium-sized companies, as well as private individuals and educational institutions. These tools are assisting training programs for specialists with a field of activity in logistics. Thereby lifelong learning is focused.

    The modification in logistics, caused by new services and outsourcing activities, requires continuous development of the involved surroundings. The software tools introduced by LOPEC seek to support this process. It transfers lean logistic know-how, as well as basic knowledge from a software solution into practicable processes. This transformation is completed by a self-assessment to analyse the own improvements. LOPEC is aiming to fill the gap between secondary and tertiary training. Meanwhile the idea of self-excellence, which leads to lifelong learning, shall be implanted.

    LOPEC combines three important aspects in one system: Modules for educational development, a new method for a continuous self-assessment and a tool for analysing different degrees of maturity, which can be integrated in a continuous improvement process. Since 2014 LOPEC acts effectively and innovative in an industrial environment.
