**17.05.2023** The math behind waiting

Dennis Schol defended his PhD thesis at the department of Mathematics and Computer Science on May 16th. The production process of large high-tech manufacturers, such as ASML, is characterized by many parties supplying the components that make up the final product. If these parties can't supply on time, this results in supply-chain delays that may have major financial consequences.
