Students taking this unit will have an opportunity to see how decision-making problems in industry, business, and civic services can be solved using modern mathematical modelling and algorithmic techniques. In SIT399, students will learn how to make better decisions through mathematical methods in optimization problems such as: production planning, management and logistics, machine scheduling, robotics/vehicle routing, staff scheduling, network design, and resource allocation. Techniques covered include linear and integer models as well as game theory models.


Weekly online quizzes (10 x 2%) 20%, oral presentation 15%, written report 15%, examination 50%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve at least 40% of the total marks allocated for the examination
