Production Planning and Scheduling

Modern companies operate in highly dynamic systems and short lead times are an essential advantage in competition. In such environments planning and scheduling decision must be robust but flexible. In addition, a variety of different products and complex flows of materials and information have to be taken into account.

In this context we offer the development of efficient strategies to create and adapt production plans and schedules. Using mathematical optimization and simulation we provide concepts for just-in-time scheduling, lead time reduction or load balancing.

Example Projects


Processes in the Construction Branch

The project »eMasterCraft« aimed to increase the penetration of the building sector with electronic data exchange and computer aided processes.


Layout of Material Flow Systems

In this project we offer the development and implementation of simulation models for complex production and material flow systems.


Smart Farming

We develop innovative methods and tools for modeling, simulation, and optimization of agricultural processes. Customer acceptance demands a choice of understandable, robust solutions.


Cognitive Agriculture

In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project we work on the optimization of agricultural processes through modern methods of data analysis or Machine Learning.


Planning of Photovoltaic Power Plants

In cooperation with Siemens Smart Generation Solutions, we develop a software that supports the planning engineers in the challenge of designing good power plants.


Production Planning in the Personalized Medicine

Personalized therapies are new and promising trends for the treatment of many diseases.
