Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able:
  • to decide on the selection of quantitative optimization models for production planning,
  • to formulate different lot sizing problems,
  • to evaluate quantitative solutions,
  • to assess the effects of forecast quality on production planning,
  • to know how decision problems arising in Operation Management can be modelled in GAMS.
