Applications of Optimization Modeling

Course: Applications of Optimization Modeling

Audience: Executives, Managers, Professionals, Supervisors
Method: Online
Duration: 8 weeks

Decision making challenges often involve several options or alternative courses of action, making it cumbersome for the decision maker to choose the “right” decision. Determining the best alternative is especially difficult in circumstances involving uncertainty and risk. Optimization modeling tools help the decision-maker find the optimal solution through a systematic approach of formulating the problem, solving it with the appropriate quantitative tool(s) and interpreting the results. Similarly, simulation tools assist the decision maker in estimating risk and uncertainty within the context of their problem area. Accordingly, the overarching purpose of this class is to help students improve their quantitative skills and make better decisions with the aid of mathematical modeling tools
