Data Analytics & Visualization Coursework: Overview
The key deliverable of the DAV course is a group-developed stand-alone application catered to the on-going decision support needs of an organization (public or private) or section of the population. These take on a range of forms, pulling in the capabilities of multiple tools with design for use in mind. On the left are a few examples of pitches, walk-throughs and live-presentations of tools developed (also see Student Project Gallery).
Additional references include a research note, Visualization in Operations Management Research, INFORMS Journal on Data Science
Example undergraduate student projects are available in the Gallery of this site, and details on the SMB-A capstone can be found here.
