Beginners in Operations Research usually find it difficult to formulate
a model on their own or to fully understand a model without the support of an
Students get better over time by studying more and more examples. In
this way they learn how to formulate a mathematical model. The idea behind this
online tutorial is to support the learning process. Typical tips and tricks are
explained in a series of short videos.

This material is for an audience in the early stage of the operations
research experience. Things are explained on a very basic level. Bachelor and
master students will benefit most.

The videos can be found on YouTube. A playlist link can be retrieved
