This cluster examines the design of sustainable value chains at strategic, tactical and operational planning and control levels.

  • Efficiency analysis and multi-criteria optimization
  • Indicator-based performance evaluation and technology comparison
  • Modeling and development of solution algorithms
  • Assessing the sustainability of global supply chains
  • Network design
  • Production and sequence planning
  • Simulation-based performance assessment and interactive procedures
