Research

The IFL consists of several research groups which collaborate interdisciplinarily in different research projects. An additional team at the Research Center for Information Technology (FZI) is also supervised by Prof. Furmans and deals with questions in logisitics.

 

Logistics Systems Material Handling Technology

The Research Group Logistics Systems deals with the design and control of logistics systems. It develops methods for the optimization, modeling and evaluation of logistics processes as well as strategies for control.
