Content of teaching

The rapid development of information technology influences business processes drastically.
A strategic IT-orientation for an enterprise without a critical appreciation of worldwide IT-development (where the half-life value of IT for logistic systems knowledge is less than 3 years) is dangerous. The pressure of costs is always in focus. For this purpose the contents of this course, as well as the detailed script will be continuously revised, and the influences on business processes will be shown in practical examples.

Focuses:

  • System architecture in Material Flow Control Systems (MFCS)

A guiding principle for a new system architecture for MFC systems is the consideration of making new standardized, functional groups available for re-usability.

  • Design and application of innovative Material Flow Control Systems (MFCS)

The most important task of the MFCS is the commissioning of conveying systems with driving commands in a way that optimally utilizes the facility and serves the logistics processes on schedule.

  • Identification of goods – Application in Logistics

Along with business processes, coded information is the link between the flow of information and the flow of materials, and contributes to error prevention in the communication between people and machines.

  • Data communication in Intra-logistics

Information describes the content of a message that is of value to the recipient.
The recipient can be both a human and a machine.

  • Business processes for Intra-logistics – Software follows function!

If the business processes from Goods Incoming to Goods Outgoing are adapted with reusable building blocks then capabilities become visible. Against this background the consideration becomes apparent, how, through an innovative software architecture,
a reusable building-block based framework can be made.
Therefore applies: Software follows function. And only if all project requirements are documented in the planing phase, and supported together in an inter-disciplinary team - consisting of logistics planners, the customers (users) and the implementation leader (IL).

  • Software development in accordance with industrial standards

Today's development of object-oriented software, and the increasing penetration of industrial software production with this technology, makes it possible to create system designs that already offer these opportunities in their facility - both for a high degree of reuse and for easier adaptability.
In software development, object-oriented methods are used to improve the productivity, maintainability and software quality. An important aspect of object-orientation is: the objects used are primarily intended to depict the real world.

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

The students …

  • can describe the business process models from goods-inbound to goods-outbound based on sound basic knowledge, and derive the corresponding analysis models.
  • will learn through the modularisation of the business process elements to think in reusable, adaptive IT components.
  • will accomplish excellent work as a highly-motivated employee together in interdisciplinary teams (responses from the industry).
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.
