Credit Hours: 1.5

Description: This course provides the necessary quantitative modeling techniques for managers to address logistics problems – that is, finding the least expensive way to transport products from their origin to their destinations. Real logistic problems are often coupled with manufacturing / plant location decisions. We will study both Linear and Non‐Linear modeling techniques. Many of these problems have a natural graphical network representation and are part of the minimum cost network flow model. Specific examples of network optimization problems include plant location problems, transportation problems, shortest route problems, maximal flow problems, equipment replacement problems and others. We will develop the basic concepts behind those methodologies with simple examples and then use them to solve complex problems in the oil and gas industry. We will use excel and other appropriate software. Department Permission Required.
