Supply Chain Management

The term Supply Chain Management subsumed all activities that are required to design the value adding process within the total supply chain optimally (from the supplier of the supplier to the customer of the customer). A well organized supply chain with efficient information flow is required to enable different nodes of the supply chain to cooperate with each other. If these requirements are present there is a huge optimization potential. 

Research Priorities

In our research, we seek to develop procedures for the management of supply chains. We thereby investigate optimization concepts for purchasing, production, logistics and services. The chairs of the Supply Chain Management priority area have each set their own priorities:
