French term or phrase: mise en place d'outils de suivi d'activite logistique
I'm trying to find a natural-sounding translation for the following (this is from a resume): "Mise en place d'outils de suivi d'activite logistique."

I came up with "Develop logistical monitoring tools" or "Develop tools for monitoring logistics" and want to get other suggestions. Under this heading, the resume lists such things as developing analytical tools to monitoring logistical costs and planning logistical budgets.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have. Karen

English translation:How about "implementation of tools for monitoring logistical activities"?
Explanation:
The French "mise en place" usually turns into "implementation" in English, and the phrase above is the most natural-sounding equivalent I can think of. (To my ear, "logistical-activity monitoring tools" just doesn't make it.) -- Hope this helps, HC
