Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The student will learn optimization methods used: - for solving of the problems related to the effective distribution of goods flow,, - for solving of the fundamental problems on the design of the structure of distribution systems, - with extended operating characteristics of selected types of queuing systems, the survey is subject to knowledge of sophisticated algorithms, - basic knowledge of the mathematical theory of traffic flows.

Teaching methods



The course is devoted to explaining the theoretical principles of optimization methods with an emphasis on sectoral applications.
