About this Unit
This unit introduces the ideas of systems and their mathematical modelling, with special reference to the allocation, inventory, scheduling, queuing and other processes taking place within social systems. It introduces modelling and heuristic problem solving techniques and goes on to introduce the standard techniques of linear programming, network analysis, critical path analysis, inventory control and simulation. Throughout, an emphasis is placed upon the mathematical development of algorithms and their computerisation.
