German term or phrase: stochastische & deterministische Verfahren
Ever since college I've always wondered how to translate these:

Die gesamte Dispositionslogistik wird im Frmework Disposition gesteuert. Unterstuetzt werden alle stochastischen und deterministischen Verfahren fuer den Handel und verschiedenste Insdustrietypen.

stochastic and deterministic processes
Explanation:
"A stochastic process is any random process which evolves over time. For example, the evolution of the dollar/pound exchange rate is a stochastic process. This is because the exchange rate fluctuates over time"


Deterministischer Prozess = deterministic process

agree  R. A. Stegemann: Deterministic processes are processes with no stochastic elements. Any other translation is likely to be inaccurate. This is a very standard pairing of scientific methodology.

  -> i.e. "stochastic" (random) - I have no control and cannot determine them, whereas I can determine "deterministic" processes.....

agree  xxxblomguib: I agree with the translation, however, not with the definition you gave of stochasticity. I deal with stochastic processes every day and the mathematicaaly correct definition is somewhat more complicated

  -> Or - "An infinite sequence of random variables, one for each value of time coordinate. Statistical properties of a stochastic process are generally defined by an infinite sequence of probability functions for process variables at multiple points in time."
