Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course covers structured programming concepts for implementing mathematical and

statistical models in industrial engineering problems; emphasis on introductory production and service system problems and computer-based approaches to solve the problems; engineering applications of probability and statistics concepts.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

This enables the students to design, analyze and program systems and industrial machinery.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

·    use  spreadsheet  and  higher  level  programming  language  within  an  industrial engineering context,

·    develop  simple  quantitative  decision  models  relevant  to  production  and  service systems, and

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student on completing this course is expected to:

·    demonstrate an understanding of basic terminology associated with production and service systems,

·   handle data to drive models and interpret data generated from models.
