Masterseminar Simulation as Decision Support

Information WS 13/14

The master seminar “Simulation as Decision Support” gives an introduction into the field of discrete-event simulation. The basic principles of a simulation study will be discussed and explained using the software AnyLogic by XjTek. In the practical part, the students will develop and implement a simulation study on a self-chosen production or service process.

In order to successfully complete the course, students will have to present their simulation study and to submit a seminar paper. Regular attendance is mandatory.


The seminar is limited to 20 students.  If you would like to participate please send an E-Mail to with a current overview of your grades or a copy of your bachelor certificate attached. Deadline is Monday, October 14th, 2013. Please note that the registration date is irrelevant for the selection process if the participant limit is reached. Feedback is sent via Email on Tuesday, October 15th, 2013.
