 P11: Planning of Logistic Systems and Processes Based on Technical and Social Data Sources

The planning of warehousing, order picking and transport is often accomplished based on a limited amount of data (e.g., handling frequencies, order numbers and stocks). In particular, this planning must consider the increasing need to deliver customer-specific product variants in small numbers as well as to cope with dynamic sales fluctuations. Taking the demand for highly-reactive and efficient deliveries into account, solutions for flexibly and properly coordinating logistics processes are required. In particular, these solutions should have access to a broad spectrum of data that include, for example, traffic data, data from social networks, information about marketing activities, product-related news, and weather data. In project P11, solutions utilizing such big data and allowing for the strategic and operative planning and enactment of logistics processes will be developed.
