Summary
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The course aims to acquaint students with methods that can be used to solve real problems in the field of logistics planning and logistics systems. The subject is devoted to two different approaches - discrete simulation and linear programming. After completing this course the student should be able to apply these approaches to solving real problems in the field of logistics.
