Joint Project of the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr
The importance of global production networks and the connected logistic relation has been significantly increasing over the last years. Planning of global supply networks is an enormous challenge for the companies involved. Cooperations are continually tested; longer delivery times and shorter product life cycles require a frequent replanning. Constant planning readiness and flexibility are the key to permanently operate a network successfully. Toady’s available IT solutions for the planning of such networks are insufficient in many aspects. Especially the needed adaptability of the IT to changing processes is only possible with a large expenditure.
