Working Group Small + Medium Batch

The theory and practice of supply chain management have so far been largely dominated by concepts from large-scale production, especially from the automotive industry. Special features and priorities in the production of small and medium-sized series (< approx. 300 units p.a.) have so far received little attention. Companies are often confronted with the fact that new employees, suppliers and consultants wrongly assume that experience from large-scale production can be transferred directly.

The Small + Medium Batch working group addresses this problem. The objectives are:

  • The exchange of experience on specific challenges in logistics
  • Getting to know application scenarios and successful implementation examples
  • The specific preparation of supply chain management in its entirety (joint publication of the working group's results)
