2015: ASIM

ASIM Dedicated Conference

From the 23rd until the 25th of September 2015 the ASIM Dedicated Conference “Simulation in Production and Logistics” took place in Dortmund, Germany. The conference provides every other year an opportunity for practitioners and academics in the field of simulation to present and discuss innovative topics. As part of the session “Assistence Systems for Simulation Use” Prof. Dr. Ralf Elbert and Torsten Franzke presented results from their research project in the field of congestion/blocking in manual order picking systems. The talk (“A Simulation-based Analysis of the Effects of Picker Blocking in Manual Order Picking Systems”) was developed during a cooperation with Prof. Dr. Christoph H. Glock and Dr. Eric H. Grosse from the chair of Production and Supply Chain Management.
