MIS3010S Analytics Modelling

Academic Year 2022/2023

"With the availability of data and computing power, analytical and mathematical approaches have become increasingly important in addressing business, engineering and other problems; notably decision problems where a decision must be made subject to constraints such as limitations on resources; or data analytics problems where we seek useful information in a large dataset.

This course introduces the concept of Mathematical and Analytics Modelling in Decision Problems, and surveys some of the major mathematical models and solution techniques. Participants will learn how to conceptualise complex business problems and transform them into a set of equations (models) that describe the problem. For example a network model, when we are given several distinct points (such as cities) and links connecting them (such as a road network), may be used to determine the optimal routing of goods in a supply chain.
