Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: examination in form of partial achievements
  • Examination Frequency: each semester
    In-class accomplishments (e.g. presentations, solution of exercise sheets).

    Lecture Supply Chain Management: written exam (90 minutes)

Evaluation of grades

All partial module examinations have to be passed. The module grade is the arithmetic mean of all partial examination grades.

LP-weighted average of the results in the taken courses of the module.

Case Study in Supply Chain Management:

In the seminar, the students write a term paper on current topics in supply chain management. In addition, the students will also present their results in a final presentation.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • analyze, structure, and formalize complex problems of logistics planning and to solve these problems computer-aided,
  • independently identify and apply the right planning methods and tools in concrete decision-making situations,
  • apply the learned methods to new problems.
