It is that dreadful time of the year when I am prepping classes and over the last few terms I came to the realization that I need to significantly beef up the practice-oriented content of my lectures. Consequently, I have started looking for case studies / problems with (ideally sufficiently large) data that can be modeled, solved and interpreted by the students.
I am aware of synthetic test instances for Knapsack / TSP but I fear that they are a little too abstract for regular business students. Therefore, I would highly appreciate combinations of paper and data (e.g., https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/10.1007%2Fs40685-014-0008-6.pdf, https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxuwSmNrxiTySWxJV3pQZ2I1YTg/edit) or free case studies (again ideally with data).
I have no requirements concerning the problem types - so anything that leverages OR tools and methods and can be replicated would work nicely. Ideally, the problem types should be close to what a student can handle equipped with a MIP solver plus general data preparation skills.
