Christoph Hartlmueller: Optimization of procurement of materials and buying processes with regard to material requirements and warehouse stock
The starting point of the thesis is a profound understanding of the processes involved in the material requirements planning of metal sheets for the production of pre-series and prototype car bodies as well as a good understanding of all involved partners and their requirements and aims. Based on this knowledge and the current IT management system, the requirements and aims for the improvement of the current optimization algorithm are derived. This specification is mapped onto a mathematical optimization problem with the goal to achieve a global optimum with regard to costs of material and storage as well as supply guarantee. Next, a tailored optimization algorithm is implemented. If required, libraries for optimization can be used in addition. In a last step, the analysis and visualization of the optimization including a recommended procurement is generated.
