Advance your skills in simulation and optimization!

This course aims to provide knowledge on how different methods can be applied to optimize production systems. We will begin with the concept of optimization theory, and then start building simulation models of production systems. After that, we will practice different methods to optimize production systems.


During the course, you will explore a variety of optimization problems related to production systems. You will gain hands-on experience on modern methods for practically simulating and optimizing production systems. You will collaborate in groups towards applying the gained knowledge on your own production cases through state-of-the-art optimization software.

At the end of the course, you will be equipped with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to implement optimization techniques on real-world production systems.

The course is given online with no physical meetings during the spring semester 2021.
