In view of the growing importance of logistics services for industrial production, logistical positioning in the area of conflict between the logistical targets is a central task of production logistics. In a turbulent business environment, fluctuating capacity requirements and available capacity must be coordinated with targeted measures (capacity flexibility or load smoothing). The aim of this research project is to mathematically describe the hitherto unquantifiable influence of capacity flexibility and load distribution on logistical system behavior on the basis of the theory of logistical characteristic curves. To this end, the stretch factor? 1 of the characteristic line theory, which until now could only be determined empirically and which - as shown in preliminary studies - depends on the available capacity flexibility and the distribution of the load, is to be converted into elementary parameter proportions.
