Handling the Dynamics in Logistics - Adoption of Dynamic Behavior and Reduction of Dynamic Effects

By B. Scholz-reiter, A. Mehrsai and M. Görges


In the paper, the performance of production networks by autonomous logistic processes and control versus those with conventional material planning under a dynamic business environment is investigated. Regarding this, by developing a discrete-event simulation model of an exemplary production network the competency of application of autonomous processes (in bearing flexibility) is presented. A new treatment approach of dynamics in logistics is represented by depicting a short spectrum of solutions. Behaving as a dynamic system against fluctuating demand is the one side of this spectrum and reacting as a constant system with conventionally planned material flow is the other side of that.
