POMcases - Case Studies in Production and Operations Management



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 for the final thesis.
