Seminar “Management of Robust Distribution Systems”
In the winter term 2011/12 the Department of Management and Logistics conducted a seminar on the topic “Management of Robust Distribution Systems”. Thereby 32 students elaborated 13 different tasks related to sustainable distribution systems and mega trends in logistics. After a discussion of the interim results, the final results were presented in two days. A highlight was the first presentation, which took place at Hugo Boss in Metzingen. In addition to a presentation of the company, its history and the current logistics projects, the visit of a central hanging garment warehouse was definitely a highlight for the students. However, the extensive discussions and background information during presentations of the seminar papers are particularly noteworthy.
The experts gave immediate feedback to the presentations, to the contributions to the discussion and information from the logistic daily routine. So the students achieved broad insights from hands-on experts during the seminar. With the help of Hugo Boss the students were able to gain an understanding of the currently implemented logistics solutions.
