    Prof. Dr. Till Becker receives a grant by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft for the development of forecasting methods for the dynamic development of supply chains

    Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has selected a project application of the “Production Systems and Logistic Systems” group of Prof. Dr. Till Becker for funding. The project entitled “Stochastic Complex Networks as Forecasting and Causal Model for the Dynamic Development of Logistic Systems “ is scheduled for three years and aims at anticipating structural changes in supply chains and material flow networks. “The distinct feature of the pursued approach is the aim to achieve good forecasts with sparse data. We want to predict likely changes in networks by applying statistic methods solely to the observable network topology“ says Professor Becker.

    Companies that are interested in participating in field tests of the forecasting approaches are invited to get in touch with the research group.
