Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

• To describe the operations research as an applied systems discipline • To define basic systems terms and terms from economic and mathematics modeling • To classify operations research methods • To explain the substance and application possibilities of the basic methods • To apply chosen methods model tools to concrete specific problems • To solve created models with PC use • To explicate and analyze obtained results

Teaching methods



The aim of the subject is to make students familiar with basics of the operations research belonging to systems disciplines and solving complex economic problems. Outputs should be knowledge of selected methods of the operations research, its nature, fundamentals, means of use in real situations. Students should be able to formulate problems and consequently design and solve applicable economic-mathematical models using appropriate software tools.
