The design, organization und management of logistics networks usually
involve model-based analyses of the network. The usefulness of such an
analysis highly depends on the quality of the input data, which naturally
should capture the real circumstances best possible. We provide a methods
utilization model for a structured acquisition of information in this
context, which guides the user through the steps of a procedure model. It
further includes a methods utilization kid to allow for the integrative,
goal-oriented use of methods from different disciplines such as data
acquisition, visualisation and statistics.
