Abstract:
This doctoral thesis was developed within the framework of the doctoral initiative "Wood - Value-added material with a future" (DokIn'Holz). Based on a literature study and evaluation of a large number of hardwood initiatives and projects in Europe, the aim of this PhD thesis was to identify and model new approaches to hardwood process chains for material use and to provide data on the solid hardwood production network. In contrast to the different process chains for softwood with a focus on load-bearing and bracing purposes in construction, the use of hardwood is much more fragmented and complex. In order to design an efficient production network for hardwoods, which is characterised by diversity and complexity, appropriate cross-company planning methods have to be developed, which contribute to improving the competitive position of individual actors as well as the network as a whole. Different approaches of production planning such as mass customization and supply chain management have been used to identify, model and evaluate possibilities for professionalization and thus to identify new ways of using hardwoods for companies in the production network. For the introduction and the reasoning behind this paper on hardwoods, background and motivation are highlighted first. In order to understand the scientific context that provides the framework for this work, the problem description and related works are discussed. Then, the methods used are presented. Finally, the results of the work are presented and discussed what they mean for the multi-tier hardwood supply chain in terms of product, technology and production processes, as well as for supply chain design and production management with mass customisation.
