Abstract

Logistics system has an important role for pharmaceutical companies, because logistics system regulates the flow of material from ordering material to shipping of finished good. In order to reduces delays that occur in the shipping process or finished goods distribution, pharmaceutical companies need to implement a better logistics system management. This study was developed with methods of business process reengineering to achieve significant process improvement. IDEF0 method is used to map and analyze logistics systems through input, control, output and mechanism (ICOM) function and to design the new logistics system. Results of this research is the design of new process through strategy that obtained from the analysis of problems occurred. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed improvements, a simulation model is built using iGrafx software. The simulation output shows decreased time process by 7.55 days and efficiency 7.93% in the logistics system.
