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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
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.
- INEG 3413 Engineering Economic Analysis (Arkansas)
