Content of teaching

This lecture, with exercises, treats automation technology in material flow as well as the information technology that has a direct relationship with it. In the first few chapters and exercises, an overview is given of the motors and conveying technology elements used in materials handling, and the sensors required for the purpose are explained. The target control types as well as the topic of coding techniques and RFID (GS1, barcodes, scanner, etc.) are treated in detail. Material flow controls are defined based on these chapters. Among other things, the functions of a stored-memory controller are explained in this section. Hierarchically classified control structures and
their integration in network structures are considered in detail. The principles of communications systems (bus systems etc.) are supplemented with information on the use of the Internet as well as data warehousing strategies. An overview of modern logistics systems, especially in stores administration, illustrates new problem solution strategies in the area of information technology for logistics systems. After an analysis of the causes for system failures, measures are worked
out for reducing the risks of failure. Furthermore, the objectives, task areas as well as various scheduling strategies in the area of transport management and control are presented. Worthwhile information on Europe-wide logistics concepts round off this practice-oriented lecture series. The presentation of the lectures will be multimedia-based. Exercises repeat and extend the knowledge principles imparted in the lectures and illustrate the
subject with practical examples.

Focuses:

  • System architecture for logistics solutions / Modularization of conveyors
  • Material Flow Control System (MFCS) / Transport Handling
  • GS 1, optical reading devices, RFID
  • Data communication between controllers, computers and networks
  • Business processes for internal logistics – software follows function
  • Adaptive IT - Future-oriented software architecture
  • System stability and data backup –Software-Engineering
  • XTS – The Extensible Transport System
Annotation

1) Detailed script can be downloaded online (www.tup.com), updated and enhanced annually.
2) CD-ROM with chapters and exercises at the end of the semester available from the lecturer, also updated and enhanced annually.

Workload

regular attendance: 21 hours
self-study: 99 hours

Aim

Students are able to:

  • Describe and classify automation technology for material flow and the information technology necessary,
  • identify, analyze and design the business processes in internal logistics,
  • identify risks of failure and counteract and
  • transfer the knowledge to practical implementations.
Exam description

The assessment consists of an oral exam (30 min.) or an written exam (60min.) taking place in the recess period according to § 4 paragraph 2 Nr. 1/2 of the examination regulation.
