Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on a small simulation project, the students will have the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge and practical skills gained from the course Simulation I. The projects will be handled by small groups. The final implementation in the AnyLogic simulation environment is to be presented in class and summarized in a short seminar paper.
This course is held in English. A basic SCM/OR knowledge is strongly encouraged. Prerequisites: simulation 1 (040669).
Online attendance during the first lesson, intermediate and final presentation is mandatory, meaning that if a student is missing or not on time, they will be dropped from this course.

Assessment and permitted materials

The final grade is composed of
- an intermediate presentation of the group project (30%)
- a final presentation of the group project (35%)
- a term paper containing a project summary and results discussion (35%)
At least 50% must 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%

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

At least 50% of the overall total achievable score must be obtained for a positive grade. The assessment is based on the students' ability to implement a small simulation project in AnyLogic, in-cluding all necessary preparatory (input data analysis) and consecutive (results interpretation and derivation of managerial implications) steps.

Examination topics

After a short intro including advanced topics in simulation (e.g., output data analysis), students will work on their assigned projects in small groups.
