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 operations management. 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 operations management
• Formulation of generic models
• Implementation of models with standard software (exact)
• Introduction to alternative solution approaches (heuristics)
