Module overview

MANG2006 introduces the building blocks of Management Science as a discipline, which is at the heart of decision-making. The module introduces the history and the context along with the general Management Science approach to decision-making. The rest of the module is of quantitative nature and introduces a number of basic techniques such as mathematical modelling including linear and integer programming, inventory theory, simulation and queuing theory. The coverage of each technique is such that emphasis is given to practical applications on realistic problems and the interpretation of the solutions. The module also covers the use of spreadsheets as modelling tools.
