Abstract
Logistics chains are mostly influenced by changes in their business environment. A systems adaptability is seen as one potential to effectively counteract these environmental changes. To consider the effects of adaptability on the whole supply chain, a framework for configuring adaptable logistics chain will be developed within the research project "KoWaLo". Therefore, the main constitutive characteristics of adaptable logistics chains and their specifications will be identified by a scenario based approach. In the following, these characteristics will be assessed in a case study based on a simulation model to evaluate the impact of specification changes within certain characteristics on the logistics chains KPIs. This paper deduces the approach to identify constitutive characteristics for establishing adaptable logistics chains and gives an outlook on how adaptable configurations will be assessed in a case study based on a discrete event simulation model.
