Manufacturing, Logistics and Supply Chain

In the research field Manufacturing, Logistics and Supply Chain, methods are developed based on digital models that optimize the complex planning and process flows along the construction value chain. Based on BIM models, logistics models are developed for planning construction site logistics, and the integration of the supply chain is improved by linking the processes of off-site production, logistics and on-site construction. The digital twin concept is used to implement cyber-physical production systems that will enable the precision fast-track construction of the future. The digitization of the value chain leads to a more efficient dovetailing of the individual steps to realize an overall resource-saving construction process.
