- Knowledge corresponding to Swedish 3 and English 5 from Upper Secondary School.


The purpose of the course is to provide deeper knowledge in analysis and optimisation of logistic systems.

After the course the student should be able to:
- desribe and explain the basic logistic principles
- analyse and solve logistic problems using operations research methodology
- perform an analysis of logistic and transport technology problems presented by companies in different sectors, for example the energy sector.


The course includes the following parts:
Computer based solution of linear optimisation problems
Integer programming including binary and mixed problems
Operational research including
- network analysis
- transport optimisation
- localisation theory
- project planning
- inventory optimisation
- queuing theory
with application in, for example, the energy sector
Basic concepts of Logistics, Introduction to Supply Chain Management
Transportation technology
Technical planning tools, information and communication technology
Transport in a societal perspective

The course consists of lectures in operations research, applied lectures (with examples from research, society and business), computer labs and a project assignment, which includes literature studies (with a literature seminar) and study visits to companies. Mandatory elements are introduction to the project assignment, literature seminar, study visit and presentation, as well as some of the applied lectures, which are indicated in the schedule.
