3.0 Synopsis

## Engineering optimization in manufacturing industry involve trying to make the most

effective use of an organizations resources. Resources in organization such as

machinery, money, energy, labor force are elements to make products. These
resources are limited; managers need to deal with these limitations. Linear
programming is one of the tools, which is widely used, based mathematical
technique to help manager plan and make decisions necessary to allocate resources.
This course covers principles and practices, tools and techniques, fundamentals of
optimization problem in manufacturing engineering. It discusses mathematical
formulation of production or operational problems and solve them using linear
programming and other optimization techniques. This course consists of two parts;
Part I - Linear programming technique: Part II: transportation models, Waiting Lines
and network model.
