ORI 366 ORI 366. Operations Research Models. 3 Hours.
Same as Mechanical Engineering 366L. Formulation and solution-interpretation for operations research models requiring, for example, optimization, simulation, or analysis of Markov chains or queues. Applications include manufacturing design and control, routing and scheduling, plant location, inventory analysis, and management of queueing systems. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Mechanical Engineering 366L and Operations Research and Industrial Engineering 366 may not both be counted. Prerequisite: For engineering majors, Mathematics 408D or 408M and Mechanical Engineering 318M with a grade of at least C- in each; for non-engineering majors, upper-division standing and written consent of instructor.
