Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses on logistic concepts for designing and operating warehouses. The dimensioning of warehouses, the product allocation, the batch formation and order picker routing as well as the arising packing problems will be discussed. Furthermore, different lot-sizing models and several solution concepts for them are being presented. The course aims to enable students to understand and solve major decision problems faced in warehousing operations and lot-sizing. Homework exercises will be used to practice the learned methods.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

A total of 100% can be obtained by:
- weekly homework assignments (20%; students must upload the homework examples in Moodle)
- a written midterm exam (40%) (date: April 20th, 2021)
- a written final exam (40%) (date: June 22nd, 2021)

The online exam is open book. The exams planned to be held on-site are closed book. Note that this might be changed to online if this is not possible due to the Corona situation.

Cheating during an examination will be sanctioned according to the university's constitution in its current form (i.e., the entire course will not be graded but marked as cheated and counted as one attempt). Signing for another student will be counted as cheating as well (also during homework sessions).

Students who want to take part in an exam are required to bring their student ID.
