Advanced Optimization Techniques - Elective Course
Mar 16-24, 2015

Zaragoza Logistics Center

Course Description:
Many decision problems in logistics can be modelled as optimization problems. In manufacturing systems, for example, decisions on the acquisition, utilization and allocation of production resources must be made in the most efficient and effective way. This course covers advanced optimization techniques for problems arising in logistics, manufacturing, transportation, and many other fields. The course provides intense coverage of modelling and optimization problem solving. Optimization methodologies include linear programming, integer programming, and constraint programming. The ultimate goals of this course are: to improve the capacity of modelling complex optimization problems in such a way that they can be solved using standard software packages; to provide an understanding of principal optimization problem solving procedures and to develop specialized solution procedures for non-standard problems. Furthermore, students learn the best way of solving Sudokus.
