Bedingt durch die COVID-19-Pandemie können kurzfristige Änderungen bei Lehrveranstaltungen und Prüfungen (z.B. Absage von Vor-Ort-Lehre und Umstellung auf Online-Prüfungen) erforderlich sein. Melden Sie sich für Lehrveranstaltungen/Prüfungen über u:space an, informieren Sie sich über den aktuellen Stand auf u:find und auf der Lernplattform moodle. ACHTUNG: Lehrveranstaltungen, bei denen zumindest eine Einheit vor Ort stattfindet, werden in u:find momentan mit "vor Ort" gekennzeichnet.

Regelungen zum Lehrbetrieb vor Ort inkl. Eintrittstests finden Sie unter https://studieren.univie.ac.at/info.

There are overlaps with the seminar Smart Production and Supply Chain Management on March 5 and April 23. The lecture for Simulation 1 on March 5 will therefore start at 10.00. The lecture for Simulation 1 on April 23 will either start later (than 09.45) or it will start as planned and be recorded for those participating in the seminar. The details will be announced later.

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to simulation modeling and analysis which is an important decision support instrument in production and logistics.
Besides theoretical foundations, with a strong focus on queuing theory, the students will come into contact with a professional simulation software package (AnyLogic) based on which small examples will be implemented, run and analyzed.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The final grade is composed of
- a midterm exam (35%, open book)
- a final exam (35%, open book)
- a mini case-study (30%, to be worked on individually, grading based on final report)

At least 50% have to be obtained for a positive grade. The grading key is as follows:
4: 50% to <63%
3: 63% to <75%
2: 75% to <87%
1: 87% to 100%

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. Otherwise, they will be asked to go to the secretary's office to make a copy of the alternative ID (driver's licence, passport, etc.). Non-official IDs (bank cards, Vorteilscards, etc.) will NOT be accepted without any exceptions. This procedure will not extend the duration of the examination.

The students' IDs will be checked only after handing out the examination sheets. Students who are not on the list or don't have a valid identification card will not be allowed to participate in the examination even if they were already handed an examination sheet.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

At least 50% of the overall total achievable score have to be obtained for a positive grade.
The assessment is based on the students' theoretical (e.g., solving problems from queuing theory) and practical capabilities (implementing simulation models in AnyLogic) acquired throughout the course.


The first part of the course is mainly geared towards acquiring the necessary theoretical foundations of queuing systems and simulation in general. This also includes a primer in statistics and selected topics like random number generation and distribution fitting. The second part focuses on "hands-on" experience with the simulation software package "AnyLogic". Students will be concerned with the implementation and analysis of small queueing systems as simulation models.
