Project planning, project execution and project evaluation are discussed in dept.
GCCOM14 - Management Science (2)
This course is dedicated to mathematical models and modeling, using spreadsheets. Modeling is the process of creating a plain version of reality and using this version to get an understanding of this complex reality.

As such, it is an important technique that is very useful because it reflects a structured and systematic approach to decision making. Linear programming consistently ranks as the most useful of the quantitative techniques used by the business community at large. Linear programming is a model consisting of linear relationships representing a firm’s objective and resource constraints. In this course we describe several different classes of problems for which linear programming and specialized linear programming models can bring the optimal solution (cost minimization, profit maximization, capacity planning, aggregate production planning, etc.).
