Operations Research Case


Course Objective

Practicing methods of operational research using real- life case

Course Content

Students learn solving real-life problems allocating costs or benefits
of joint projects. The training concerns the formulation of the problem
in a manageable quantitative model, to evaluate the theoretical
properties of available solutions and their computational complexity, to
select appropriate and computational tractable solutions, to develop a
software tool for solving the problem, to carry out the required
calculations and to report the results in an essay. Participants work on
a real-life case in small groups of 2 or 3 students.

Standard lectures will guide the student through the computational
aspects of statistical estimation, simulation and optimisation methods.
To gain further insights in the practical detail, computer programs for
the implementation of some computer-intensive methods will be developed.
