POMcases - Case Studies in Production and Operations Management


Winter 2020/21: AutoPOM coding lab

We will dive into mathematical programming and solve three common planning tasks from the automotive industry (see figure above). In order to do so we will introduce the programming language Julia and work with the optimization package JuMP. Both will be studied with hands-on self-assessment tasks before the actual homeworks. No prior knowkledge just analytical and programming interest as well as interest in production management tasks are required. A separate registration is also not necessary.

Important: To take part in the course, the first event is mandatory, registration via Qispos/Pr├╝fungsamt for regular students and via for visiting students is required at the latest for the submission of the first homework assignment (portfolio examination).


As a member of a team you will work on current problems from the practice of industrial production and operations management. You will develop solutions which you will implement and test with the help of state-of-the-art software tools. The procedure and results are finally documented, presented and discussed.

The group work is accompanied by lecture and practice units in which we teach you the basics of scientific work and how to use the software used. In-depth programming knowledge is not required. 

An important goal of the module is to prepare you for the final thesis. We will cover not only the content and structure of scientific work but also give you the tools to work on a quantitative optimization task of your own.
