Decision Making in Logistics

Abstract:
The aim of logistics managers is to ensure smooth logistics operations in all logistics segments. Management generally consists in solving more or less complex decision-making situations. While in a simple decision-making situation, the manager usually uses intuition, experience and practice in the field, intuition is not enough to solve more complex decisions and it is necessary to make certain calculations manually or using computer technology. The aim of the project is to acquaint the students with key decision-making problems, including especially the solution of distribution problems such as vehicle routing, warehouse location, assignment of requirements to sources, Container Problem, etc. Furthermore, students will be encouraged to be able to identify decision-making problems in specific logistics system and they will learn to solve the problems through mathematical models and software tools currently offered by informatics and operational research methods.
