Module assignments


In this seminar the students learn to implement and solve mathematical programming problems using the standard optimizations software IBM ILOG CPLEX. At the end of the module, the students are able to understand the approaches to tackle deterministic planning problems in service operations. Furthermore, the students are able to assess the modeling approaches in terms of effectiveness and efficiency, and to present their findings in class. Finally, they are able to make sound decisions.

The course deals with the following topics:
• Introduction to deterministic linear and integer programming
• Overview of modeling techniques and fundamental problems in service operations
• Formulation of generic models
• Implementation of models with standard software
