    Learning Outcomes

    Students will be expected to be able to recognise real-world scenarios which can be modelled by the techniques covered; to be able to implement these scenarios in a quantitative model; and to be able to interpret the results of the model and evaluate their reliability.


    This unit is an introduction to the modelling of management scenarios using spreadsheets and other software. It deals with the application of mathematical modelling techniques to management problems of realistic size. The emphasis is on formulation and interpretation of models. Topics will be drawn from decision making, project scheduling, analyses of inventories and queues, and linear programming techniques. Situations of certainty and uncertainty are considered.
