  • Phone: 570-408-4807
  • Office: SLC-214
  • Office Hours: By Appointment
  • Class Times and Location:
    • EGM-516: Wednesdays 6:00PM-8:45PM Breiseth 207
    • EGM-321: Thursdays 6:00PM-8:45PM Stark 224

  • Course Description: Quantitative techniques for managerial decision-making are covered. These techniques include linear and integer programming, nonlinear programming, decision analysis, queuing theory and simulation. Problems are modeled and then solved using computer software. This course introduces students to applied principles of optimization and modeling with an emphasis on engineering applications. It is expected that during this course students will gain a number of practical skills, including model development, computer-based solution determination, and deriving implications to engineering management. Software used for this course includes Microsoft excel add-ins (various add-ins are available on accompanying book CD).

  • Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course a student should be able to:
    1. Construct an optimization model and compare alternatives under certainty or risk, sensitivity analysis (contrast), discuss the implication (evaluate) of solutions to the management planning process;
    2. Use Excel and other software to solve applied engineering problems;
    3. Collect data, simulate performance of a system, validate simulated decisions by way of analysis, and propose cost effective alternatives;
    4. Research a current trend, analyze how the trend impacts on global cultures; and propose future trends in the discipline that may be of engineering benefit ; and
    5. Discuss the results of an analysis effectively.
