Aims
This course deals with some of the techniques for modeling and optimizing systems under uncertainty. It aims to increase the capability of analyzing managerial problems under uncertainty which occur, for example, in inventory and production control, telecommunications, maintenance, and insurance. The emphasis is on providing insight in the theory, on formulating an economic situation into a mathematical model and on providing practical examples in which the discussed models can be applied.
