Instructor: Van-Anh Truong
4 pts. Lect: 3. Recit: 1. SIEO W3600:Introduction to Probability and Statistics and IEOR E3608: Introduction to Mathematical Programming. For undergraduates only. This course is required for all undergraduate students majoring in IE, OR:EMS, OR:FE and OR. This class must be taken during (or before) the sixth semester. This course equips students with knowledge of fundamental issues in production and inventory planning and control in manufacturing firms while developing students' modeling and analytical skills. The course is targeted toward engineering students planning careers in technical consulting, business analysis in operations, logistics, supply-chain and revenue-management functions, positions in general management and future entrepreneurs. The course will cover inventory management and production planning; material requirements planning; aggregate planning of production, inventory, and work force; multi-echelon integrated production-inventory systems; and production scheduling.
