Abstract

In this paper the outcome of the student project Virtual Logistics Lab (VLL) is described. The open issues of already existing logistics labs are discussed and VLL’s approaches to solve these issues are introduced. The dynamic and technical approaches are explained, including the flexible plug-in architecture for machines of warehouse logistics and the web-based user interface for remote control of the machine-complex at the LogDynamics Lab. The events of live demonstrations of VLL via XML based scenarios are described and options for future work are named.
