Module content
Lectures:

Managers and information technology professionals should understand basic methods of enterprise wide operational planning and supply chain coordination. This course provides an accessible introduction to standard quantitative methods for planning and scheduling of production and logistic operations, basic modelling techniques, optimisation models and information systems applied in operational planning. Basic outcome of this course is understanding of various planning problems and models, their objectives and constraints, chances which give us advanced planning systems and their limitations. Mathematical models are in the background. Assignments give students hands-on experience at developing models and solving problems. Course software and e-books are available to download.
