Knowledge of basic principles, utilization of concepts and appraisal of fields of application of logistical information and communication systems

Course Goals:

  • Autonomously analyse complex logistical system and flow structures and classify them scientifically
  • Select, apply and where necessary refine operational optimisation models for logistical configuration and control problems considering existing interdependencies between decisions
  • Analytically assess innovative concepts and methods of logistics and critically reflect and judge their applicability and limitations
