BUA 355 - Introduction to Operations Research

3 CR

This course is concerned with linear programming, integer linear programming, and a variety of useful application areas. These include transportation problems, assignment problems, transshipment problems, make or buy problems, blending problems, staff scheduling problems, equipment acquisition problems, production routing problems, and others chosen to demonstrate the great flexibility of the procedures and the very diverse range of problems and issues that they have been use to illuminate. Students solve problems graphically and with software, with an emphasis on sensitivity analysis and a thorough grasp of the analytical depth available from these models. (This course is cross listed with MAT 355 .)

Prerequisite(s): MAT 113 .
