Short bio

Christian Gahm, born in 1979, studied Applied Computer Science at the University of Augsburg with a focus on software engineering and programming languages as well as communication systems and systems-related computer science. Since November 2006, he has been a research associate at the Chair of Production & Supply Chain Management. Since his doctorate in 2010, Mr. Gahm has been leading the research group "Production Management" and is striving for his habilitation. In the area of research, Mr. Gahm is concerned with the development of problem-specific scheduling algorithms, energy-oriented production planning and decision support or advanced planning systems in operational practice. In addition to classical courses (lectures and seminars) in the areas of supply chain management and operations management, Mr. Gahm is also responsible for the organization and implementation of the course offerings regarding ERP systems (SAP) at the Faculty of Business and Economics. The transfer of knowledge from research results and the latest methods into business practice is of great concern to him and has already led to great success in many practical projects.
