Beschreibung:
  1. Literaturstudium
  2. Erörterung von Problemstellungen aus der Praxis
  3. Entwicklung und Analyse von Modellen für diese Problemstellungen und Diskussion von Erweiterungen und Problemvarianten
  4. Anwendung von wissenschaftlichen Methoden zur Lösung dieser Problemstellungen
Lernziele:

Anhand von Fallstudien lernen die Studierenden reale Entscheidungsprobleme aus dem Bereich der Logistik und Verkehr sowie die Anwendung wissenschaftlicher Methoden zu deren Lösung kennen. Sie sind in der Lage solche Entscheidungssituationen wiederzugeben und zu erklären sowie die Erkenntnisse auf andere Anwendungsfälle zu übertragen. Des Weiteren können sie mathematische Modelle und ausgewählte Verfahren zur Lösung von realen Problemen nachvollziehen und anwenden.

Als Grundlage dienen wechselnde Fallstudien aus der Praxis, wie z.B. in Zeitschriften wie Interfaces oder Operations Research (Practice Teil) -- siehe Literatur für Beispiele -- dokumentiert sind.

Bemerkung:
Description:

Based on case studies, the students get to know real-world decision problems in logistics and traffic as well as scientific techniques for their solution.

Learning Targets:

Students are able to analyse practical cases of decision problems in logistics and traffic and to transfer the findings to ther practical cases. Furthermore, they are able to trace and apply quantitative models and selected techniques for the solution of real-world problems.
