Learning outcome

After the completion of this module, the graduate will have the knowledge and an understanding of internal and inter-company material flow systems: The students will have learned about and can apply newly acquired skills to practical examples regarding the following issues: physical inter-company transport, internal forwarding of goods as well as the storage and manipulation of goods and possible administration of goods by means of technical tools, the technical representation and controlling of internal and inter-company material flow information systems. The physical and IT-related material flows are complemented by economic considerations and monetary quantification.
The graduate will possess the fundamental knowledge in the fields of logistics technology (bar code, RFID, storage technology, logistics software) as well as supportive IT systems (ERP and APS systems), should be familiar with their possible practical applications and know how to use them as optimization potentials and EVA. Detailed knowledge of logistics controlling and corresponding operating numbers can be used as a basic control mechanism.
