Main content


The department IT in Production and Logistics (itpl) has been founded in October 2010 and is established by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Phys. Markus Rabe. The research is focussing on the deployment of future-orientated concepts of information technologies for logistics and production technologies (see figure).
The core subjects of the application are networked enterprises, self-controlled systems and concepts of the “Internet of Things and Services” as well as project planning and project monitoring. The latter refers both to projects of factory planning (from the demand-orientated requirement planning to the design of production systems) and to the implementation of IT Systems.


Themengebiete am FG IT in Produktion und Logistik

For those kinds of applications, research is conducted in fundamental I&C technologies and the required models. Concepts include, among others, Web Technologies, which gained increased significance in the linkage of companies (e.g. so called extranets), but can also be used for accessing knowledge within companies. Technologies in this area are exposed to drastic changes from knowledge offering systems (the classical world wide web) to knowledge managing and integrating systems, which actively adopt the knowledge of the users (wikis) or generate new knowledge by structuring information (semantic web). New approaches for the enrichment and application of those technologies in the fields of production and logistics are under investigation.

In the field of modelling, models of business processes and production logistics are emphasized. For this purpose, dynamic models of the discrete-event simulation technology are analyzed in particular. Together with fundamental information technologies these models are imparted to future engineers as a focus of the teaching activities. A substantial topic thereof is the validity and credibility of models respecting the tension between efficient solving strategies and a sufficient level of detail.
