The Course

In Operations Research (OR), we do not have a single general technique to solve all mathematical models that can arise in practice. Instead, the type and complexity of mathematical model dictate the nature of the solution method. The most prominent OR technique is linear programming. It is designed for models with linear objective and constraint functions. Other techniques included in this course are integer programming (in which the variables assume integer values), network programming (in which the problem can be modeled as a network) and project scheduling (in which the problem can be expressed as time chart and resource leveling).
