LOG716 Mathematical Modelling in Logistics (Autumn 2019)

About the course

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.

The course is connected to the following study programs

Recommended requirements

A quantitative background is required.
