Present networks of production and logistics are charac terised by increasing dynamical and structural complexity. Along with the nonlinear dynamics of such networks, an efficient planning and control can typically not be guaran teed and economic risks arise. As a strategy to overcome corresponding problems, we propose to apply nonlinear methods for the analysis of models of such networks, which make a holistic understanding of complex dynamic systems possible. The overall intention of our work is the derivation of strategies and methods for the management of complex distributed networks of production and logis tics based on the results of these analyses.
