ATHENS - MP19 - Operations research in the industry

Sigle: MP1223/5, ECTS: 2

Objectifs du cours

This course will focuss on three important concepts of Optimization and Computer Science theory :  linear programming (LP), graph theory and dynamic programming (DP). Its aim is to provide ATHENS students with a solid background in Operations Research so they can tackle real problems  in the industry. The domain of applications is spreading from planning,  to logistics, from routing to and inventory control to revenue management.
After a two days "crash-course" in operations research that will focuss on fondamental concepts and techniques, we will work with them on 6 test-cases that can be found in Airlines or Transportation companies, Telecommunication companies, Services and commodities.


Some knowledge of mathematical modelisation, duality concepts in optimization, an interest in computer science and programming, the ability to use spreadsheets.
