Logistics: Technologies and Digital Processes

The course teaches the basics of the use of information systems in strategic, tactical and operational logistics control and planning. In addition, the use of automation and identification technologies is dealt with in more detail.

In the application part of the course, the basic functionalities of ERP systems are learned in practice. This includes the creation of master data as well as order planning and processing. The system-side mapping of logistical warehouse structures is examined in more detail. For the operation of these warehouse structures, the use of automation and identification technologies is demonstrated under laboratory conditions.

Warehousing processes are also examined in greater depth with the help of material flow simulation methods. As part of the consideration of information systems for integrated product, process and SC design, questions of strategic network simulation with application systems are learned.

Learning Objectives

The students learn about the use of suitable software for a wide variety of logistical problems and how to apply it, as well as corresponding information strategies in logistics networks. The focus here is particularly on conveying and experiencing the potentials and limits of the use of different information systems for operational, tactical and strategic logistics planning and control. The event provides an overview of relevant (future) technologies such as Blockchain, Internet-of-Things, Big Data and Cloud Computing with a focus on their use in logistics.
