By Dr. Manharlala N. Patel   |   Department of Statistics, University School of Sciences, Gujarat University, Ahmedabad, India.
Learners enrolled: 1072
The present course has been specially designed for the students
studying in the subject of Business Economy at CBCS
The course will cover the essential aspects of quantitative
techniques useful in management viz: linear programming,
Transportation and assignment problems, Dynamic and integer
programming, Game theory, simulation techniques, Markov chain,
and network analysis.
The course will mainly emphasize the different methods of
Operations Research (OR). By studying this course students will
taught how the solution of the decision making problem can be find
using the models of OR. There are some problems which cannot be
solved by any traditional methods, in this case the methods of OR
The course will emphasize especially the modern techniques along
with their significance in the area of decision-making.
