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. Logistics, in the area of power generation industry, can be a very complicated system as it typically involves many participants who undertake a number of operational activities and subsequently includes a number of interfaces which need to be properly dealt with. To enhance the management and control from an EPC contractor's point of view, a 'one-item-multiple-code' approach is proposed so as to realise the traceability of items and related operations along the logistics phase. The presented approach imitates the relationship of ID no. and other certificate numbers by the use of KKS being unique and fundamental code. Its merits and demerits are analysed in detail. The implementation and developed IT system based on the approach are subsequently discussed. Finally, the paper goes on to point out two directions which need to be further exploited by future research.
