Management science techniques are used in the decision making process and are used extensively in modern engineering to plan, organise and control construction and manufacturing. In this course several analytical techniques will be investigated including network analysis, project management, linear programming, simulation and quality control. Many of these quantitative methods are used, not only in engineering production and project work, but also in the management of other processes.
