Es besteht die Möglichkeit in Abteilung X eine Abschlussarbeit (BA / MA) zu verfassen. Ein tiefgreifendes Verständnis der Inhalte, die im Rahmen unserer Lehrveranstaltungen vermittelt werden, wird hierbei vorausgesetzt.

Themenvorschläge zu Abschlussarbeiten

  • Amazon’s flywheel business model: recasting as causal diagram and critical discussion (Mail)

  • Ramping-down production capacity: literature review and conceptualization (Mail)

  • Ein dynamisches Modell von strategischen Trade-offs und Barrieren (Mail)

  • Verhältnis zwischen Lager- und Backlogkosten und seine Konsequenzen auf Bestellmengen in einem dynamischen Produktionssystem (Mail)

  • Social preferences in supply chains (Mail)
    Comprehensive literature review of social preferences (e.g., fairness, reciprocity, altrusim, etc.) in the context of supply chains, with the possibility of simple system dynamics modeling extensions.

  • Empirical Studies in Operations Strategy Content and Process – Literature Review (Mail)
    The field of Operations Strategy (OS) is one of the major topics in Operations Management – it has evolved ever since Skinner argued to consider manufacturing as a competitive weapon rather than a mere cost factor. OS is commonly divided into content (the “what” of strategy, i.e. outcomes and decisions) and process (the “how” of strategy, i.e. formulation, implementation, monitoring). For a long time, research on OS was conducted from a strongly conceptual and prescriptive viewpoint – some 20 years ago, many researchers started to argue in favour of more descriptive and empirical research. This bachelor-thesis reviews contributions to the OS literature in the past years and assesses whether the field has since significantly profited from empirical contributions. There is a large and easily accessible literature base available. Furthermore, the thesis identifies potential gaps in the literature and points out future research potential.

  • Entscheidungsbereiche der Produktionsstrategie in stagnierenden Märkten: Fertigungstechnologie

  • Entscheidungsbereiche der Produktionsstrategie in stagnierenden Märkten: Organisation

  • Agent-based modeling as a problem-solving tool in supply chains
  • Degrowth and capacity ramp-down in Forrester’s market growth model (Mail)

  • Artificial Agents playing the Beer Distribution Game (Mail)

  • The impact of power on fairness perceptions in supply chains (Mail)
    A modeling based research which incorporates real-world supply chain data into existing fairness models to study the behavior of supply chains with major power inbalances (e.g., coffee).

  • Experimental comparison of inequity aversion models (Mail)
    Pilot-testing an experimental setup with the goal of verifying existing system dynamics models of inequity aversion.

  • Reciprocity in the Beer Distribution Game (Mail)
    Modeling and/or experimental study of reciprocity in the context of the Beer Distribution Game.

  • “Factory Physics” mit System Dynamics (Mail)

  • Conceptualising a Research Model for Qualitative Empirical Research on the Operations Strategy Process (Mail)
    Based on empirical, quantitative research it can be shown, that companies employ an Operations Strategy (OS) process that is similar to the conceptualization of Slack & Lewis. In other words, the seek the harmonization of market- and resource-based elements of strategy. A future research project is meant to gather deeper, more detailed insights in antecedents of the strategy process as well as the barriers of implementing strategy processes. Such research is best carried out as qualitative, empirical research e.g. structured interviews as part of a case study. This thesis conceptualizes this research project. Starting of with an in-depth analysis of the respective literature, the task is to develop adequate research questions and a model on how to answer them (e.g. interview-questions). Choice of software for analysis as well as potentially assessing actual empirical data gathered by the chair are also part of the thesis.
