Uitgebreide vaknaam Specialization Course Applied Operations Research
Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Apply (mathematical) modeling as a tool for analyzing and solving practical decision problems.
2. Work with a software package for simulation (Plant Simulation).
3. Translate results from the model into answers for practical problems, in an understandable way for problem owners as well as OR specialists.
4. Write reports and give oral presentations
5. Assess the application of OR theory and models to practical problems
Omschrijving Students will work out a number of case studies (in pairs), on which reports will be made and presentations given during the course. The cases are practical applications of planning and scheduling problems in, among others, production- and distribution logistics, telecommunication, maintenance, and public transport. Much attention will be paid to the possibilities and difficulties encountered when using simulation as a flexible method to analyze the process of complex stochastic systems. Special attention is given to statistical analysis of the output and optimization with the aid of simulation. Guest lectures covering a number of OR application areas provide an overview of how OR models and techniques are used in practice.
