Operations Research is a discipline included in the class of decision science and management science; therefore, in addition to the basic notions of this subject, the lessons provide professional skills related to Problem Solving and Decision Making in the area of transport of goods and people.
The aim of the course is to give students the basics of operations research, which are most relevant to the strategic and operational planning of enterprises. Particular emphasis will be given to the field of logistics and transport. The course is aimed at developing optimization models for decision making problems. Main topics: • Overview of the operation research modeling approach • Linear programming and the Simplex method • Duality theory and sensitivity analysis • Network optimization models • Inventory management and supply chain
The main objective of the teaching is to provide students with the basics of Operations Research that are most relevant to the strategic and operational planning of companies, with particular reference to the logistics and transport sector. The lessons are aimed at providing the skills to develop, solve and analyse optimisation models for solving relevant decision-making problems in the freight and passenger transport sector.
The expected learning outcomes at the end are teh following:
The basics of mathematics and economics are taken for granted.
Traditional lectures with the possibility of using the PC in the classroom.
