    • This course is an introduction to the principles and the applications of Operations Research (OR) — a discipline regarded as “The science of better”, and its roles in human decision-making. In particular, the course focuses on OR techniques such as Linear Programming (the Simplex Method, Duality Theory and Sensitivity Analysis), Network Optimization (Transportation and Assignment problems), and Queuing Theory, Decision Analysis and Business Simulation, as well as their applications in practical problem-solving. It also emphasizes the essential role that standard mathematical tools and computers play in the analysis and solutions of practical problems when OR techniques are applied
