Seminar Production and Operations Management

Winter semester 2021/22

In this seminar, concrete questions on topics of Production and Operations Management (POM) are considered with the help of well-known methods of Operations Research (OR). Students will be given a mathematical model or concept which they will first understand and extend in a meaningful way. Subsequently, the students will implement their solution and present it in a comprehensible way.

This seminar is primarily aimed at students majoring in Production Management in the Industrial Engineering program. If sufficient capacities are available, students of other majors can also participate in the seminar.

Lecturers: Zacharopoulos, Pohl

Description

In this seminar, concrete questions on topics of Production and Operations Management (POM) are considered with the help of well-known methods of Operations Research (OR). Students will be given a mathematical model or concept which they will first understand and extend in a meaningful way. Subsequently, the students will implement their solution and present it in a comprehensible way.

This seminar is primarily aimed at students majoring in Production Management in the Industrial Engineering program. If sufficient capacities are available, students of other majors can also participate in the seminar.

Goals

Students will be able to

  • work independently on problems from the areas of "Production and Operations Management". 
  • apply known methods and approaches from operations research to a problem independently
  • include their own knowledge in the consideration of the problem
  • critically analyze their own results as well as the results of other students
  • present the results of their work
