Remarque

The course is given by various lecturers.

Summary

Introduction to operations research algorithms for decision support in transportation systems.

Content

The course is case-study based, it will be divided into modules associated to concrete case studies. Each module will contain the following parts:

1. Presentation of the problem, outline of the process, analysis of major difficulties.

2. Formulation of the optimization problem.

3. Introduction to optimization methods.

4. Implementation using software tools.

5. Solution of a concrete problem by the lecturer, using real data.

6. Solution of similar problems by the students, using also real data.

 

Emphasis will be put on enhancing students' abilities to model and implement decision support methods in transportation systems. During the course the students would be introduced to the Julia programming language and to the JuMP modeling language for mathematical optimization (embedded in Julia). Programming skills are not a prerequisite, but note that most of the exercises would require programming abilities at the level taught during the exercise.

Assessment methods

Work in the exercise will be done in groups. At the end of each module, each group would be required to submit a short report on the exercise.

At the last part of the course, each group of students would be assigned with a final project, in which they will be required to implement approaches learned during the course.

Each group would submit a report and present their project at the end of the course. Assessment would be based on the quality of the report, the quality of the presentation and an oral exam that would take place during the presentation.
