Decision making in fields such as industry, business, marketing, government and environmental management is often difficult because of uncertainty and constraints, and the complex nature of the system under study. Operations research is the scientific approach to solving problems which arise in such complex systems, and hence is an aid to decision making in many areas.

This course focuses on the model development, analytical techniques and the background mathematics necessary for the solution and post-optimal analysis of linear programming, integer programming, transportation, assignment, network, and critical path problems.
