Skills to be acquired in this module
The lecture pertaining to the module focuses on the development and critical discussion of formal analytical models for modelling and optimizing problems in operations and supply chain management. The aim is to provide students with the skills they need to analyze value-added processes in reality and not only to understand them, but ideally also improve them. The accompanying seminar, held in English, serves to deepen and critically examine the topics from the lecture. Supplementary to the lecture, the seminar deals with conceptual and empirical research and cases. Hereby, students get to know scientific discourses on practically relevant issues that are difficult to model. Furthermore, there will be ample training in scientific work, in team work and in presentations in front of large groups.
