Supply Chain Management & Inventory

Prof. Dr. Herbert Meyr (TU Darmstadt)


This topic focuses on quantitative support of decision problems arising in the management of inter-organizational supply chains and in the long-term, strategic to short-term, operational planning of intra-organizational supply  chains. Thus, a very broad range of planning problems spanning from cooperations between independent companies to optimization and coordination of different functional departments - like procurement, production, transport and sales - within a single company is covered. Varying "production" speeds on the different stages of inter- and intra-organisational supply chains are usually balanced by inventories at stocking points. Thus, inventory management models and methods are of further special interest for this topic.
