Seminarangebot im Wintersemester 2021/22


Das Fachgebiet Management Science / Operations Research wird im Wintersemester 2021/22 ein Masterseminar mit dem Titel „E-Commerce supply chains: The current state of research” anbieten.


The topic of the seminar is planning problems in the supply chains of e-commerce retailers. These are discussed on the basis of current research articles in the field of OR. Participants work in small groups (up to 4 students per group) on specific planning problems based on the articles provided. Each group tackles one paper to be studied in depth.

For each paper, a case of application, the planning problem itself, as well as one small extension of the optimization model need to be presented. Results are first presented to all participants in a seminar presentation. Here, the results are discussed (so-called friendly revision).

The results on the planning problem and potential new findings resulting from the discussion are then summarized in a seminar paper (approx. 25 pages per group).


Prior knowledge in Operations Research required! It is recommended that only students who have successfully completed the basic module Operations Research and/or the master module Warehousing & Delivery Logistics apply for the seminar.
