Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The goal of the course is to provide students with an in-depth coverage of selected topics from production planning and control. By adopting a strongly quantitative, mainly model-driven perspective, the students are introduced to methods and approaches for solving typical problems that arise at different levels of the planning hierarchy. The scope of issues discussed ranges from aggregate planning to detailed scheduling and is illustrated by sample calculations. Links to the area of optimization and related concepts ((meta-)heuristics, exact optimization algorithms, linear and mixed integer programming) are pointed out and critically reviewed, also from a practical point of view.
