Productive4.0 is a large-scale research project, which aims at using Industry 4.0 ideas and technologies to improve the design, manufacturing and distribution of high-tech products. Within this project, two work-packages provide models, which shall be used to design, optimize and control large supply chains, which consist of manufacturing and distribution elements. In our contribution, we give an overview about the current state of the usage and usability of stochastic, especially queueing models for the above mentioned purpose.
