Course Objectives/Course Description

 

Course description: Every business in the world needs to make complex decisions. These decisions -- what to make, how to do it reasonably, how to schedule production, whether to outsource, how to get their goods to market, and so on -- drastically affect their profitability. However, in the modern world, the factors affecting these choices are too complex to manage by hand. Operations Research (OR) provides the tools needed to make these decisions rigorously and effectively. This course enables the students to know the scientific approach to decision making when solving business problems. Several methods are introduced in applying mathematics to solve management problems quantitatively. The determination of the most efficient use of limited resources in maximizing some measure of benefits could be solved using the graphical method or algebraic method. Determining the most profitable distribution pattern for transporting products from factories to markets, and determining the best way to assign a number of objects to a number of other objects are other major problems handled in this course. Models are presented for making decisions when the payoff to the decision maker depends on the decision made and an event occurs after the decision is made.Every business in the world needs to make complex decisions.
