Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

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 the major decision problems faced in warehousing operations and lot-sizing. Homework exercises will be used to practice the learned methods.

Assessment and permitted materials

A total of 100% can be obtained by:
- homework assignments (20%; students MUST be present in class and prepared to present the exercises in class upon request)
- a written midterm exam (40%; no course material allowed)
- a written final exam (40%; no course material allowed)

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.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least 50% have to be obtained for a positive grade. The other grades are distributed as follows:
4: 50% to <63%
3: 63% to <75%
2: 75% to <88%
1: 88% to 100%
