Current research topics from the area of Operations Management – these are the focus of the new ”Journal for Engineering, Management and Operations“  under the co-editorship of Professor Dr Peter Ohlhausen. The first in the series has now been published.

The first issue focusses on the topic of “Industry 4.0”. “Everyone is currently talking about this concept, but it does contain a number of ambivalences which emerge again and again during the discussion in science and industry”, says Ohlhausen.  The journal provides an overview of  issues raised by companies in the three research areas “digitisation of the factory“, “logistics“ and “people in the factory of the future“. In the articles about these areas corporate representatives with their expertise, who in cooperation with ESB Business School have developed practical solutions in the respective areas, also get the chance to air their views.

“The series is of course interesting for the scientific community, above all for researchers in the early phase of their career. But we also aim at “practitioners“ with a scientific interest“, says Ohlhausen.

Publication of the second volume of the “Journal for Engineering, Management and Operations“ is planned for winter 2019
