LOG716 Mathematical Modelling in Logistics
A quantitative background is required.
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.
After completing the module the student will
- get experience and training in developing and solving mathematical models, and to analyze the result
- become familiar with using software to solve linear models.
3 hours of lectures per week plus exercises in computer class.
Required reading list is given in Canvas at the semester start
