Prof. Dr. Y. Ilker TOPCU
Course description and goals
Learning the methodology and various techniques of OR and
finding optimal solutions to problems: Linear and Integer Programming (including
sensitivity and duality) and Transportation, Transshipment, and Assignment
We will use the computer software packages LINDO and QM as
well as Microsoft Excel add-in package Solver to solve these models
There will be 3 individual assignments:
Midterm exam 1 (30%), Midterm exam 2 (30%),
Final exam (40%).
The 1st midterm exam will be
held on November 8th.
The 2nd midterm exam will be
held on December 13th.
The final exam will be held on December 20th.
The topics covered in the first 5 weeks
will be included on the 1st midterm exam and the topics covered
after the 6th week will be included on the 2nd midterm
exam. All topics covered will be included on the final exam.
Do not. Studying together to understand the material is
fine, but the work you hand in is to be your own. No cheating will be
tolerated: A letter grade of F will be given!
