Herzlich willkommen!

Tradition und Visionen

Der Lehrstuhl für Förder- und Lagerwesen, FLW (founded at TU Dortmund University in 1972, is one of the most long-standing logistics departments. In an interdisciplinary team of around 20 employees we research, develop and teach in the fields of intralogistic designing, engineering and controlling. We also carry out fundamental- and contract research as well as planning and consultancy projects for our clients from the industry, trade and service sector, equally for public and research institutions. A milestone of recent scientific work is set by fundamental developments of the Internet of Things – the origin of the “forth industrial revolution”. In this context the first “Spring Meeting on AutoID” took place in Dortmund in 1999, which dealt with the automatic identification of goods and commodities – not only within logistics. The chair, settled in the faculty of mechanical engineering, evolved into an interdisciplinary institution of teaching and research: Scientists from the disciplines of logistics, computer science, engineering, electronics, statistics and design work and research together on the future of logistics. “PhyNetLab” has its origins from this cooperation involving hundreds of “intelligent containers” and other smart devices, for instance the “Coaster” (currently largest testbed for cyber-physical systems in logistics). The chair is resident at the LogistikCampus since 2013, an interdisciplinary research center of TU Dortmund University and the Fraunhofer IML, which mostly originated from the work of FLW and its professor Prof. Dr. Michael ten Hompel.)
