The following assumed knowledge is expected for postgraduate students undertaking this course: MATH2089

Manufacturing engineers routinely solve complex problems involving resource allocation, process and supply chain optimization, work and activity flow and balancing, machine capacity analysis and the planning of capital expenditure. Some problems lend themselves to deterministic modelling, and part of the course will address traditional operations research methodologies, including linear and dynamic programming, queueing theory, network optimisation, and transportation modelling. Since simulation (particularly discrete event simulation) is increasingly used in industry, this course will place heavy emphasis on simulation and the statistical analysis of results. Simulation software used is Rockwell Arena ®.
