Chair of Production and Logistics
Through teaching we convey the applications of classical and innovationve methods and models that support in the decision-making processes relevant to production and logistics management.
Central to our research activities are planing and decision-making models for the improvement of resource and energy efficiency for applications in individual companies and supply chains.
