Integral Logistics Management — Operations Management and Supply Chain Management Within and Across Companies

5.4 Logistics Business Methods in R&D

Intended learning outcomes: Produce an overview on integrated order processing and simultaneous engineering. Describe release control and engineering change control. Differentiate between various views of the business object according to task.


In R&D, the individual processes do repeat themselves, but always with new products. This section will present some important concepts common to planning & control in this area. The concepts will be treated in Section 17.5 with regard to computer-supported processes.
