Courses

EIND 422 INTRODUCTION TO SIMULATION
F 3 cr. LEC 3
PREREQUISITE: CSCI 111 or equivalent, and EIND 354 or equivalent.
-- Discrete simulation modeling methodology; random number generation, sampling, output analysis, validation, and verification; application to varied systems design and analysis problems. Cross-listed with CSCI 477.
This course uses several simulation software such as Arena and Simio* simulation software.

*Simio simulation software was provided under a grant from Simio LLC (http://www.simio.com)


EIND 458 PRODUCTION AND ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT
S 3 cr. LEC 3
COREQUISITE: EIND 464 or Instructor Consent.
-- Design and management of efficient production/delivery systems for goods and services, emphasizing quantitative analysis and systems approaches. Topics include forecasting, inventory management, production planning, scheduling, material planning, and lean manufacturing systems; plus introduction to organization and management theory.


EIND 464 PRINCIPLES OF OPERATIONS RESEARCH II
S 3 cr. LEC 3
PREREQUISITE: EIND 354 and EIND 364
