Opportunity costs in logistics

Opportunity costs, also known as alternative costs or foregone costs, express a foregone benefit in costs on the basis of decisions that have a negative impact and enable an approximately accurate cost calculation. The degree of utilization always…

Exoskeletons in logistics and production

Exoskeletons, also known as outer skeletons or support robots, are support structures worn on the body, which reduce the load on the body and reduce the risk of injury by means of (electro-)mechanical support. Exoskeletons are still at an early…

Function and advantages of the ant algorithm

The Ant Algorithm, also often called Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) in the literature, is an algorithm for the approximate solution of complex optimization problems. This method of combinatorial optimization, also known as metaheuristics, is based on…

Lean Production

Lean Production describes a method with the goal to react quickly to outside influences on production systems. This is a concept that affects the efficiency increase of all company activities within a value chain. This includes, for example, the…

VDI 3601 – Warehouse Management Systems

In Guideline 3601 - "Warehouse Management Systems", the Association of German Engineers (VDI) describes which requirements a Warehouse Management System (WMS) should fulfill. The VDI thus answers a question that has been around for years: When are…

Opportunity costs, especially in intralogistics, are a popular means of identifying capacities in advance.
