Knowledge of models used for management like Transportation, Assignment, linear programming.
This course provides strong foundation for understanding the fundamental principles and laws of Operation Research to understand Linear programming, network Analysis and queuing, replacement models. Students can understand and solve the problems regarding management and application of various models .
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Introduction to Operation Research
2. Exercise on formulation of LP problems
3. Exercise on graphical solution of LP problems
4. Exercise on Simplex method
5. Exercise on Two-Phase method
6. Exercise on duality of LP problems
7. Exercise on Transportation problems
8. Exercise on Assignment problems
9. Exercise on Queuing problems
10. Exercise on Replacement problems
11. Study about Simulation of a Forward Pass Mechanism used for finding Critical path in a PERT analysis
12. Simulation of a Single Server Queuing Model.
13. Simulation of a Double Server Queuing Model.

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. The best three works should submit to GTU.
