Successful PhD Defense by Stanislav Chankov

It’s been a successful fall for the PLN workgroup, after two other colleagues, Stanislav Chankov was the third PhD student from the workgroup to defend his PhD thesis in the last months.

His cumulative dissertation entitled “Synchronization of Manufacturing Systems – Definition, Measurement, Triggers and Effects” investigates the phenomenon of synchronization in material flow networks, discussing both the causes and consequences on production performance.

His thesis was approved by the committee comprised of Prof. Julia Bendul, Prof. Marc-Thorsten Hütt (both from Jacobs University) and Prof. Michael Freitag (BIBA, University of Bremen)
