Course objectives To use different mathematical modeling techniques utilizing Operations Research (OR) methodology To learn various methods that are used for quantitative decision making To find optimal solutions to problems

Course learning outcomes
Students who pass the course will be able to use different mathematical modeling techniques solve a problem modeled with LP comprehend the solution of an LP model understand the sensitivity of a solution to the changes at the parameters of the problem use some computer software to model, solve and analyze a linear model identify whether a solution is optimal or not solve and analyze transportation and assignment problems with related methods

Cheating and Plagiarism
Do not! Studying together to understand the material is fine, but the work you hand in is to be your own. No cheating will be tolerated: A letter grade of F will be given! You can constitute a group of maximum three students to submit assignments. You may submit a unique report for your group (of course plagiarism among assignment groups is strictly forbidden).
