The Chair of Factory Planning and Intralogistics at Chemnitz University of Technology focusses on the operation of holistic production and service systems. It has strong expertise in modeling and simulation, the design, implementation and operationalization of flexible, integrated production and logistic system solutions as well as in data acquisition and analysis for process monitoring and system diagnostics. Co-organizing industry relevant events, and working closely with industry, the chair focusses on theory driven practice-oriented research that matters. This is reflected in our cutting-edge research that is published in leading international journals and our teaching, which focusses on preparing students for their future challenges in practice through a strong focus on process thinking and problem-solving skills.

The Chair of Logistics at the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences Zwickau is concerned in teaching and applied research with the analysis, modelling, design and digitalization of logistics processes and systems in internal logistics and supply chains. Topics addressed include material management, material flow design, production and supply chain strategies, network design, procurement & supplier management, as well as innovative qualification concepts and the support of decision-making processes. The chair cooperates with renowned research partners as well as companies from a wide range of industries (automotive production, mechanical and plant engineering, electronics, food industry, trade, logistics service providers).
