Scarcity is a dominant feature of the economic landscape – time, labor and other inputs into business processes. The essence of management is to make choices that make optimal use of scarce resources. Students
In this online course, will learn how to apply linear programming to complex systems to make better decisions – decisions that increase revenue, decrease costs, or improve efficiency of operation.
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 decision 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.
