Brief description of the content

This module teaches basic quantitative methods to support business decisions. By using these quantitative models and methods, complex real problems can be analyzed, modeled and evaluated in a structured manner and the best possible solution can be determined. Linear optimization can be used in a variety of ways, the basics of which, including algorithms and standard software, are presented. Exemplary applications of various business areas such as production and investment planning, logistics and revenue management provide an overview of the potential for use. Furthermore, applications such as transport optimization and project planning are presented on the basis of graph-theoretic methods. Decisions in dynamic or risky situations can, among other things, be supported by simulation, which is also dealt with.
