Leerdoelen 1. To expose the students to a variety of modeling approaches to address logistics problems
2. To provide the students with a better understanding of analytical performance measures under uncertainties in supply chains
3. To improve the students' coding capabilities and numerical analytical insights in logistics and supply chains.
Omschrijving This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of logistics systems. The topics are introduced from an engineering perspective. Emphasis is given to theoretical foundations, mathematical tools, modeling, heuristic notions and algorithms.

The course is organised in three main topic areas.
Demand forecasting
Inventory management
Transportation and distribution planning and operations

We will make use of numerical examples and MATLAB coding to illustrate the concepts in practice.
Class will be a mix of lectures and tutorials.
