Course content

The mathematical models will be related to logistics problems taken from production planning, distribution planning, and combinations of these. The course also deals with logistic relations and the use of discrete variables in modelling. During this semester, the software programme, AMPL with CPLEX, will be used. The course is a combination of selected topics in logistics and an introduction to the use of software programmes.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student will

  • become familiar with using software to solve linear models
  • get experience and training in developing and solving mathematical models, and to analyze the result.

 

Working and learning activities

3 hours of lectures per week plus exercizes in computer class.
