General information

Course name Project seminar: Cases in Simulation
Subtitle with AnyLogic
Semester SS 2021
Current number of participants 16
expected number of participants 15
Home institute Prof. Dr. Jens Brunner - Health Care Operations / Health Information Management
participating institutes Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Fakultät
Courses type Project seminar in category Teaching
First date Thu., 22.04.2021 14:15 - 17:45
Participants Homework/Assignment: We will assign a total of approximately 5 problem sets, focused on data analysis and simulation modeling with AnyLogic. Each problem set is designed to build upon the material covered in the preceding lectures. The homework assignments will be prepared by teams consisting of up to three students.
Pre-requisites Basic knowledge in operations management (e.g. BSc course "Produktion und Logistik"), basic knowledge in mathematics (including Linear Programming, e.g. BSc course "Mathematik I + II") and in statistics (probability distributions, e.g. BSc courses "Statistik I + II").
Learning organisation All course topics are introduced in the class by a lecture and tutorials. Students solve assignment-sheets in groups of three and can get assistance from a tutor during the week.
Performance record Course assessment consists of the following parts:
• Results of assignment-sheets (as a group)
• Presentation (individually)
• In-class participation (individually)

Since every course is part of the course assignment, it's necessary to be present on each of the six lecture-dates!
