Information Logistics and Decision Support Systems

The right information at the right time in the right place

This guiding principle of information logistics describes in particular the planning and control of logistic processes as a compelling basic requirement in a company.

However, as global markets are constantly changing, it is becoming increasingly difficult to guarantee these basic prerequisites. Thus, it becomes necessary for companies to have all important information available anytime and anywhere in order to remain efficient and responsive and to be able to make the right decisions.

The department "Information Logistics and Assistance Systems" develops logistic assistance systems (LAS) that support the management of increasingly complex tasks and decisions through intelligent information networking and efficient processes such as simulation and optimization.

Our experts in the three teams Digitalization, Compliance and Digital Assistance support you with their comprehensive expertise in their respective fields and work with you to develop the right strategy for your company to optimize your information flow.

Join us in mastering the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

We look forward to working with you!
