Synopsis

Understanding Autonomous Cooperation and Control in Logistics The Impact of Autonomy on Management, Information, Communication and Material Flow by Michael Hulsmann

One of the great challenges in flexible production and supply chains is the availability of necessary information at any time and place. Autonomous logistics processes can bring about fast and flexible adaptations to change. This book identifies autonomous logistics processes and details how they differ from conventionally managed processes. Coverage also describes the changes that autonomy will cause in order processing.
