040064 KU Implementation of Optimization Techniques - Teil 2 (MA) (2020W)

4.00 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 4 - Wirtschaftswissenschaften
Prüfungsimmanente Lehrveranstaltung

The course KU Implementation of Optimisation Techniques (8 ECTS) as mentioned in the master’s curriculum Business Administration will not be offered any more in its original form. It is now split into two parts: Implementation of Optimization Techniques Part 1 (4 ECTS) and Implementation of Optimization Techniques Part 2 (4 ECTS). Hence, both courses are compulsory for students of Business Administration doing their Major in Smart Production and Supply Chain Management (as an equivalent to the old 8 ECTS course).

For students of Business Administration who are NOT doing their Major in Smart Production and Supply Chain Management, this course can be chosen as elective course.

A positive grade in Implementation of Optimization Techniques Part 1 is a prerequisite for participating in this course.

The course is particularly recommended to students, who want to write their thesis in the field Smart Production and Supply Chain Management.

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Overall objective: to learn "hands-on" how to implement optimization algorithms in C#.
The course covers following topics:
* Get familiar with Microsoft Visual Studio
* Basic and advanced concepts of the C# programming language (data types and operators, methods, classes, loops, input and output with files, arrays)
* Methodological knowledge for developing algorithms and their translation into C# (a step by step approach to select suitable data and program structures)
* Implementation of Constructive Methods and Improvement Methods for the Traveling Salesperson Problem (TSP) and the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP)

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

* [100%] Homework/Projects: Programming Exercises & Theory questions
Attempts of cheating might be penalized by deducting up to twice as many points as the exercise is worth. In severe cases, cheating (copying code) may even lead to failing the course and an entry of “X” in the record of exams.
The amount of work for the programming exercises increases throughout the course. The achievable points for the exercises are therefore weighted according to their workload (i.e. exercises at the beginning of the course are worth less points than exercises at the end of the course).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

In order to obtain a positive grade on the course, at least 50% of the overall points have to be achieved, and at least 50% of the projects have to be positive. The other grades are distributed as follows:
1: >87% to 100%
2: >75% to <87.5%
3: >63% to <75%
4: >50% to <62.5%


* Basic and advanced concepts of the C# programming language (data types and operators, methods, classes, loops, input and output with files, arrays).
* Implementation of optimization methods for various problems that arise in production and logistics.
