\chapter{Guidelines}\label{ch:styleguide}
This chapter introduces the guidelines for writing a thesis at the Process Dynamics and Operations Group. It is recommended to use \LaTeX{} as the code of this style guide can directly be used for the thesis. However, a Word version of this template is also available. In the template, the correct fonts, font sizes, citation style, and so forth are already set.

\item PDF\LaTeX\ (three times): The first run should already generate the List of References and the List of Symbols. The second run should update all citations etc.\ in the PDF. Sometimes, a third run is necessary if some references within the text have changed again. In this case, a third run is necessary. Check the output of Texmaker.

\subsection{Updating Packages in \TeX Live and MiK\TeX}\label{subsec:update_packages}
As stated above, compilation problems appeared with this template when old versions of the packages were used. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a possibility to automatically check for updates of packages when they are included in a \LaTeX{} document.\\
As stated above, compilation problems appeared with this template when old versions of the packages were used. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a possibility to automatically check for updates of packages when they are included in a \LaTeX\ document.\\
In case you have issues when compiling this document, start with updating all your packages. The following instructions are valid for a Windows operating system.
\begin{description}
\item[\TeX Live] manages the packages via the tlmgr (\TeX Live 2018) or tlshell (\TeX Live 2019). The GUI of the tlmgr is located in \path{texlive/year/bin/win32}. In this folder, you find a file called \path{tlmgr-gui.exe} or \path{tlshell.exe}, respectively. Use this program to update your packages.
\item[MiK\TeX] manages the packages in the MiK\TeX\ console (package manager in older versions). Use this application to update your packages.
\end{description}
Similar applications are available on all other operating systems. Restart your \LaTeX{} editor after updating all packages and see whether you can compile this template without errors. If your problem persists, please add an issue on the gitlab webpage of this template.\footnote{\url{https://gitlab.tu-berlin.de/dbta/Thesis_template/issues}, February 2019}
