Starting block
RemarksThis module component needs to be followed in parallel with (or after passing) the component Simulation and Heuristics.
Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After successful completion of this module component, the student is able to:
  1. design and implement a conceptual simulation model in a simulation environment, according to the project specifications;
  2. perform simulation experiments, interpret the outcomes of the simulation, and formulate recommendations that are useful for the problem owner;
  3. apply construction and improvement heuristics and local search heuristics to solve relatively simple problems.
In the module component Project Simulation and Heuristics, which builds on the Simulation and Heuristics component, students learn how to use computer simulation to gain insight into stochastic systems that are too complex to analyse via other means. Students need to analyse the system to be simulated, implement a model into discrete-event simulation software, implement heuristics for planning and scheduling and priority rules, and perform a proper statistical analysis in order to draw conclusions about the performance of the system.
