This month btv has initiated a project in cooperation with „Fraunhofer Institut für Materialfluss und Logistik“ , „Institut für Produktionssysteme“ at „Technische Universität Dortmund“ and „Institut für Forschung und Transfer".

The technology experts of these institutes cooperate in a centre of competence sponsered by „Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft“ and develop and implement projects on the digitisation of intelligent logistics and value-adding networks for medium-sized companies.

In this project, we focus on pooling customers‘ requirements (delivery call-offs), stocks, production capacities and planning parameters. In the sense of big data analytics we use this complex data structure and aim at creating a transparent forecasting module and tool.

The project which is scheduled to produce results by mid 2017 shall smoothen production and logistics processes and reduce inventories.
