ORL-20306 Decision Science 1.
This course broadens and deepens the knowledge and skills acquired in ORL-20306 Decision Science 1.
The global aim is to learn to deal with new (difficult) models and algorithms. The focus of the course is on supporting logistical decision processes in a business environment by means of quantitative models and techniques.
Long-term as well as short-term management/control of good-flows and required production factors are studied. Some of the topics: location-allocation problems (strategic control level), production planning and inventory management (tactical control level), capacity and revenue management, routing problems (operational control level), non-linear and dynamic programming, and simulation-based optimization.
After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- classify typical decision problems in logistics;
- deduce a quantitative model for presented decision problems in logistics;
- judge which technique and algorithm is appropriate to solve the formulated problem;
- apply (newly) provided algorithms to calculate a solution to a provided decision problem;
- evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of algorithms.
- studying the literature;
- acquiring knowledge, skills and insight by active participation in the tutorials;
- making exercises and acquiring skills by active participation in the tutorials and practicals.
The written open book exam has to be passed with a score equal or higher than 50 out of 90 points. With the practicals 10 points maximum can be obtained. Written exam + practicals = max 100 points.
Admission condition to the written exam: sufficient assessment of the practicals during the course.
