Prerequisite
No specific pre-requisite. Students should have primary understanding of production management concepts and necessary quantitative background.
Rationale
Operations Research studies analysis and planning of complex systems. This course will focus on mathematical modelling. A strong emphasis will be given to model formulation. On the methodology side, Linear Programming techniques, Transportation and assignment problems, queuing and replacement theory will be introduced.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
Build their own formulations, to expand existing formulations, to critically evaluate the impact of model assumptions and to choose an appropriate solution technique for a given formulation.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide.
