Skills to be acquired in this module
Objective of the module/skills:
The Module Transport systems deals with planning and controlling systems of internal and external company logistics as well as public transport. It provides basic knowledge and recent research topics. The focus is on a resource orientated holistic view of company logistics as well as the planning of transport infrastructure.
Furthermore, trends such as autonomous vehicles and intelligent transport systems are discussed.

Professional competence
The students:
  • name the basics of planning and controlling company logistics
  • assess transport systems of companies
  • name methods and approaches of computer aided transport systems and classify them
  • characterise software to plan complex logistics

Methodological competence
The students:
  • display topics and concepts of transport systems
  • simulate transport and its systems with appropriate methods

Social competence
The students:
  • work in groups
  • discuss their results appropriately

The students:
  • realise their limits while working on a project containing aspects of modelling and implementation
  • question the presentation of their results
Module contents
