Skills to be acquired in this module

Introduction to the problems/challenges of simulation and planning of applications in production and logistics. The students will learn the simulation with a tool in hands-on exercises.
Learning objectives:
The Students

  • have knowledge of basic problems/challenges of simulating and planning in the field of production and logistic
  • know approaches and algorithms to solve simulation and planning problems/challenges
  • are able to model solutions for simple production problems/challenges with a simulation tool and
  • are able to solve given tasks with it
  • are able to identify, classify and associate solutions to problems/challenges
  • are abel to model and implement a production plan with the simulation tool

Professional competence
The students:

  • Characterise basic problems/challenges of the production planning and logistic simulation
  • Name approaches/concepts and algorithms to solve simulation and planning problems/challenges
  • Identify, classify and assign solutions to planning problems/challenges
  • Model and implement a given production process with a simulation tool

Methodological competence
The students:

  • Model small production problems with a simulation tool and solve given tasks with the tool

Social competence
The students:

  • Develop solutions to given simulation problems in small groups
  • Present the solutions to other groups

The students:

  • Reflect their own solutions in conjunction with other solutions
Module contents

This module provides the basic production and logistic planning and simulation approaches/concepts. Supply chain planning problems are introduced and simple algorithmic solutions are introduced and implemented. The hands-on simulation with a tool is provided by a case study from the production.

  • selected material on the simulation tool
  • others will be announced in the lecture
