Information Systems for Logistics Networks
The planning and control of cross-company logistics processes is dealt with in the subject area of information systems for logistics networks. An efficient design of the information flows is thus essential. Modern technologies for communication and interaction of systems are used in IT; Web services or cloud technologies are just a few examples of these. However, the planning and design of network-wide material flow is also no longer imaginable without the use of software – modern algorithms plan and control efficient supply chains.
