Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of this module, the students have gained a good overview on current mathematical methods to solve scheduling or processing problems. The latter are of great importance for the organization of operative processes and computer science. The students understand the mathematical background required for the methods used and they can critically assess the possibilities and limitations of the use of these methods. They are able to name and to prove the essential statements of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections. In particular, they are able to outline the conditions and assumptions that are necessary for the validity of the statements.
By completing the given exercises, the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture. In addition, they have learnt how to apply these techniques to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies.
