DSI-610 Optimization - Linear Programming

In this course, students will learn how to apply linear programming to complex systems to make better decisions - decisions that increase revenue, decrease costs, or improve efficiency of operations. The course introduces the role of mathematical models in decision-making, then covers how to formulate basic linear programming models for decision problems where multiple decisions need to be made in the best possible way, while simultaneously satisfying a number of logical conditions (or constraints). Students will use spreadsheet software to implement and solve these linear programming problems. Graduate students enrolled in this course will complete a project/assignment that engages in higher levels of thought and creativity, requiring them to demonstrate knowledge at more advanced taxonomical levels.
