The realization of effective and economical logistics concepts plays a major part in the course of a factory development planning of a company. After working out possible logistic concepts it is the turn to choose an apt logistic concept, which suits the company’s requirements for logistics now and in future. A problem of Bosch Mahle Turbosystems, an automotive supplier, was the basis for the following work. The text at hand has the focus to develop a workable evaluation tool based on an extended tension triangle to analyse different logistic concepts comprehensively. The corner points of this tension field are the critical success factors cost, quality, time and flexibility. The visualization of the evaluation results by an extended tension field supports the decision making process for or against a specific logistic concept. To start with, the theoretical part of the work provides an introduction to the key functions of logistics and their characteristics in the automotive industry. The following presentation of lean production systems builds a fundament for the evaluation tool. The hereinafter described evaluation models are derived from the goals of the lean production systems. Quantitative and qualitative evaluation models stand behind the different corners of the extended tension triangle. The second part of the work concentrates on evaluating concepts at Bosch Mahle Turbosystems. The evaluation uses the models, which were introduced in the theoretical part, while emphasizing on the cost analysis. Thereafter the results are brought together in the evaluation tool, which is the basis for the elaboration of a guidance for the specific case at Bosch Mahle Turbosystems. Finally an analysis and a critical reflection of the evaluation tool take place.
