Course content

In the course “Logisitics of Chemical Production Processes” an overview of batch production and the related planning and scheduling problems in the process industries and of supply chain management are given. Suitable solution
techniques and tools for modelling, simulation of production systems and for the optimization of production schedules are introduced. The set of techniques and tools include discrete event simulation, equation-based modelling, mixed-integer linear programming, heuristic optimization methods as well as modelling and optimization using timed automata.

Acquired competences

The students are enabled to identify and classify logistic problems, to select suitable tools and techniques for their
simulation and optimization and to apply them to real-world problems.
