Dynamo PLT Dynamic and Seamless Integration of Production, Logistics and Traffic

How should the decision-making processes in production, logistics and traffic be organised across companies and the public sector to ensure an optimal and seamless interplay between the three areas? As a result of globalisation, shorter innovation cycles and an increasing volatility in the markets, business enterprises are increasingly dependent on the performance of their partners in the value chain as well as on underlying traffic conditions. Moreover, the ease with which value creation networks can be established and integrated plays an essential role in determining the competitiveness of industrial locations. Dynamo PLV is developing methods and instruments for decision-making processes in the business sector and in politics that will help to ensure the seamless management of flows of goods and information in production, logistics and traffic. As an extension of the cooperation established in the LOEWE research cluster, Dynamo PLV will be continuing its practice-related exploration of instruments intended to provide support for interdisciplinary decision-making processes and will be transferring its findings to new teaching concepts. To support this research, funding has been obtained from public-sector project promoters such as the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and from private enterprises.
