Overview

Engineering Project and Operations Management techniques are used extensively in modern engineering industry to plan, organise and control construction and manufacturing operations, as well as other operations such as logistics and maintenance operations. Engineering project and operations management is also referred to as `operational research' and utilises quantitative analysis to assist with the decision making process. This course is focused on the quantitative aspects of management contrasting the more qualitative aspects explored in ENG3003.

In this course, a selected number of analytical techniques will be explored including network analysis, project management, linear programming, statistical analysis and micro-economic functions. Many of these quantitative methods explored in this course are used, not only in engineering production and project work, but also in the management of other operations.
