The course teaches in-depth content of strategic, tactical and operational logistics planning and, in particular, logistics system planning in industry, trade and logistics services. Furthermore, the use of information technologies, automation and identification technologies as well as the interaction of the logistician with these systems are dealt with in more detail.
In the application part of the course, the methods of process recording, process analysis and process design are learned in practice. This includes the classification of products and components, process visualisation, key figure calculation, in particular through the method of value stream design and the calculation of the total cost of ownership.
In-depth consideration is given to technological components that are necessary for the planning and control of logistics systems and that, as part of logistics systems, improve processes towards higher customer satisfaction. For the execution of warehouse processes, the use of automation and identification technologies is demonstrated under laboratory conditions. As part of the examination of digitalised logistics processes, questions of cross-plant logistics planning, real-time tracking of processes and digital business models in logistics are learned.
The students learn how to use suitable methods for various design, control and planning problems in logistics. The focus here is particularly on conveying the customer order process and its influence on operational, tactical and strategic logistics system planning. Due to the holistic approach, the planning of logistics systems for industry, trade and logistics services is considered, including the integration of customers, suppliers, development, production and transport.
