- Demonstrate an understanding of the key concepts and ideas in statistical modeling on larger datasets
- Describe suitable statistical methods for using on larger datasets relevant in logistics
- Choose and use appropriate statistical methods for answering a logistics related problem, and report the findings in a suitable and compelling format
- Critically evaluate statistical materials and methods and reason about their limitations
- Reflect on ethical aspects and considerations when collecting and analyzing larger datasets


- Key concepts in statistical modeling with a focus on larger datasets
- Statistical methods relevant for statistical modeling in logistics
- Opportunities and limitations of different statistical methods
- Reporting statistical findings in a compelling way
- Ethical aspects on collecting and analyzing data


The course consists of one or more project assignments together with lectures and a written exam.


See course homepage.

Examination including compulsory elements
