Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Identify strategic, tactical and operational decisions for certain transportation and logistics problems
2. Model and assess strategic and tactical decisions
3. Understand the basic mathematical modeling techniques
4. Identify and design the right mathematical model for a proposed transportation model
5. Use an optimization tool and analyze/evaluate the results
6. Present the results and the final decisions in a report and show them to an audience of supply chain and logistics managers
Omschrijving Transportation systems are dynamic in nature and they need to be changed and adapted to new market situations or, for example, new technology advances. Typical strategic, tactical and operational decisions for this framework are introduced. Then, the attention is put on under-performing logistic systems and on the way to improve them by means of strategic and tactical decisions. The student is provided with different tools (graphical modeling, simulation tools) that he/she can use to analyze the current system and to assess new alternatives: tweaking some parameters of the system or evaluate new configurations in order to reach a certain performance target. Finally, mathematical modeling techniques and classical models are used to describe operational decisions. The possible applications of the models are shown by means of an industrial solver.
