Operations Management

Subject of the Operations Management are quantitative methods for the support of decision making in businesses. Integrated design, management and control of production and logistic processes are the main fields of research.
For the solution of quantifiable decision making problems, the investigated processes (e.g. a mathematic program, simulations or batch model) are mapped. The result of the modelling is a formal description of the action alternatives and the framework for the subsequent scheduling.

In dependence of the respective time window to the execution of the planning and of the grade of definiteness of planning data, processes of pure predictive, robust, reviding or stochastic offline plannning or processes of the online planning can be used.

Methods of combinatorial optimization and mathematical programming are commonly the basis for these processes .
