Inhalte der LV

The following topics will be addressed:

  • Introduction to simulation
  • Planning methods for logisitcs (Kanban, MRP)
  • Output analysis (confidence interval, pivot tables)
  • Simulation and optimization (parameter variation)
  • Network design under uncertainty


Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After successfully passing the class, students should be able to know and apply the models and theories of network design in supply chains.


Furthermore, they should be able to develop and validate simulation and optimization models that allow them to compare different network design configurations and to find the optimal network design for a given situation. 






Regelung zur Anwesenheit

Attendance in the first lecture is mandatory for the participation in the course. If an absence cannot be avoided inform the lecturer  before class and provide some form of proof for the absence (e.g. medical confirmation) in the next session. In total, a minimum requirement for attendance of 80% is required to pass the course.

If the attendance falls below 80% for students receiving partial credit, students are graded with 5 (Nicht genügend). See further:


Presentations, in-class exercises, HW assignments, quiz

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

Homework  assignments: 40%

Presentation and report of a case: 20%

Final exam: 40 %

Cooperation with other students on homework assignments is encouraged. However, the final write-up must be done individually. ‘Duplicate’ homework write-ups are unacceptable and will receive a score of zero. (Any homework that is late will receive a score of zero.)

Grading scale:

  • Excellent (1): 87.5% - 100.0%
  • Good (2): 75.0% - <87.5%
  • Satisfactory (3): 62.5% - <75.0%
  • Sufficient (4): 50.0% - <62.5%
  • Fail (5): <50.0%

Prerequisite for passing the course: minimum performance of 50% in the final examination.
