The course will start 8:15 on Tuesday the 2nd of January 2018 at Lecture hall U351.
Lectures are given in U351 on Tuesdays 8.15 - 9.45 and in K3/118 on Thursdays 14.15 - 15.45 during period III. There is no lecture on Thursday the 25th of January.
Computer classes take place in Maari-B 14:15-16:00 on Fridays 12.1., 19.1., (no exercise on 26.1.) and 2.2.
Four project assignments are done in groups of 2 students. Registration to groups will take place in Oodi.
Assignment report dead lines are two weeks from computer classes at noon: 1) Optimization/Factory location: 26.1., 2) Data fitting: 2.2., 3) Optimization/Flow shop: 16.2., 4) Optimization/Aggregate planning: 23.2. Submission in MyCourses.
The following are listed in Oodi:
- Factory physics: foundations of manufacturing management / Wallace J. Hopp, Mark L. Spearman.
- Design and analysis of lean production systems / Ronald G. Askin, Jeffrey B. Goldberg.
- Planning and scheduling in manufacturing and services / Michael L. Pinedo.
- Lecture notes.
- In Aalto library e-books / Knovel you can find Operations Research / Yadav, S.R.; Malik, A.K. (2014). This covers optimization and queuing theory, but since it is a text book, presented differently form lectures and lecture material.
- Matlab Neural Network Toolbox help contains a thorough introduction to neural networks.
- Any statistics textbook covers linear regression modeling.
Grading of Course
- Based on total points: maximum 20 p. for assignments + 20 p. for examination = 40 p
Grading of assignments
- Based on report; see separate instruction
- Same general criteria as is used for any other report (see e.g. School of Engineering ”Master’s thesis guidelines”) is applied
- Scale 1 – 5 p / assignment:
- 1 point: you have done some modeling and experimentation, but your models are seriously wrong and your experimentation is rubbish.
- 2 points: you have done the modeling and experimentation, but there are deficiencies and/or analysis is not adequate
- 3 points: experimentation is well designed and analysis and conclusions are covering and correct
- 4 points: extra problems are answered.
- 5 points: All basic and extra modeling, experimentation, analysis and conclusions are complete and correct. Report is logical, well organized and easy to read.
Grading of examination
- There will be four questions, each 0 - 5 p. => max. points 20
