Contributions of logistics for ecologically production
Logistics is an integrating discipline for planning, control and controlling of information flow and material flow. Within this background logistic approaches to increase efficiency will be shown which are leading to cost and time reduction and an increasing quality at the same time. Modern automatic systems for storage, transport and order-picking will be introduced. The consequences of an orientation towards the customer and the linked demands of flexibility on the design of logistic systems will be discussed. Furthermore logistic solutions for the reconciliation of production and environmental protection are shown. The concept of a ,closed-loop economy" as well as logistic approaches for traffic avoidance and reduction are presented.Finally the demands on the logisticans concerning their education are derived from the reported examples.
