There are many solutions to a given problem, but selecting the solution with the lowest annual cost would be the most desirable one. Modeling, linear programming and search optimization techniques along with spreadsheets allow us to examine alternative solutions for a problem. This course will introduce the key ideas of modeling and optimization of systems, and methods of management decision-making using Solver™ and MS-Excel™.
