Teaching & Outreach

Graduate Courses Taught

  • ISYE 6610 Systems Modeling in Decision Sciences (RPI) Survey of decision science methodologies in the context of technical and economic decision problems. The course seeks to develop a conceptual understanding of these methods and basic implementation skills. Students will learn how to apply decision science methods from problem recognition and data development through problem formulation and computer solution. [Pazour ISYE44600 ISYE 6610 OR Methods – Spring 2017]
  • ISYE 6600 Design of Manufacturing Systems and Supply Chains (RPI) 
    Dynamics of manufacturing systems and supply chains, lean manufacturing, lead time reduction in manufacturing and service operations, advanced pull systems, concurrent design of products and supply chains, rapid new product introduction, remanufacturing and reverse supply chains, and integration of information technology in supply chain operations. Analysis of models and their application to design and planning problems in manufacturing as well as service systems is emphasized. [Syllabus: Pazour ISYE6600 Design of Mfg Systems and Supply Chains – Fall 2017]
  • EIN 5346. Engineering Logistics (UCF) Study of the logistics life cycle involving planning, analysis and design, testing, production, distribution, and support.  Emphasis is on the design and operations of logistics systems using quantitative approaches. EIN 5346 – Spring 2015 Schedule
  • ESI 5306. Operations Research (UCF)

    Methods of operations research, including formulation for models and derivation of solutions; linear programming, network models queueing theory, simulation, and nonlinear optimization techniques. ESI5306 Syllabus Fall 2014 – Pazour ESI5306 Schedule Fall 2014 – Pazour

  • EIN 6336 Production and Inventory Control (UCF)

    Review of models and techniques used in forecasting, production control and inventory control. Includes aggregate planning, production scheduling, inventory management, models, etc. [EIN6336 Syllabus Spring 2013Pazour ]

Undergraduate Courses Taught

  • ISYE 4600 – Operations Research Methods (RPI)

    An introduction to commonly used methods of deterministic and stochastic operations research. Topics include linear programming, simplex algorithms, duality, linear networks, integer programming, dynamic programming, goal programming, location models, exact and heuristic solution procedures for integer and sequencing problems, queuing theory, Markov chains, multi-criteria decision making, and decision analysis. [Pazour ISYE44600 ISYE 6610 OR Methods – Spring 2017]

  • ISYE 4210 Design and Analysis of Supply Chains 
    An overview of the principles involved in the design and operation of supply chains with applications to manufacturing and service industries.  Topics include dynamics of manufacturing systems and supply chains, lean manufacturing, lead time reduction in manufacturing and office operations, advanced pull systems, concurrent design of products and supply chains, rapid new product introduction, remanufacturing and reverse supply chains, and integration of information technology in supply chain operations.  The goal of the course is to enable students to synthesize models and tools and to understand how these could be applied to address emerging challenges in manufacturing and service systems and their supply chains. [Syllabus: Pazour ISYE4210 Design and Analysis of Supply Chains – Fall 2017]
  • EIN 4545 Industrial Engineering Applications in the Service Industries (UCF)

    Application of industrial engineering principles to improve the quality and productivity of service industries such as restaurants, banks, hotels, health care, etc. [EIN4545 Syllabus – Pazour – Fall 2014]

  • INEG 3413 Engineering Economic Analysis (Arkansas)
