Alamo Colleges

Alamo Colleges Online is in the midst of evaluating their online courses and exploring how Open Educational Resources can fit into their course development and redesign processes. Alamo is partnering with OER Commons to provide roadmap consulting, training, and a suite of tools is seen as an important step in building awareness and capacity for the use of OERs within Alamo College’s online courses. This groups is a collaborative workspace where participants can discuss, evaluate, and organize OER. http://www.oercommons.org/hubs/Alamo-Colleges

Logistical and Transportation Planning Methods, Fall 2006

(View Complete Item Description)

Quantitative techniques of operations research with emphasis on applications in transportation systems analysis (urban, air, ocean, highway, and pickup and delivery systems) and in the planning and design of logistically oriented urban service systems (e.g., fire and police departments, emergency medical services, and emergency repair services). Unified study of functions of random variables, geometrical probability, multi-server queuing theory, spatial location theory, network analysis and graph theory, and relevant methods of simulation. Computer exercises and discussions of implementation difficulties.

Logistics Systems, Fall 2006

(View Complete Item Description)

This subject is a survey of the fundamental analytic tools, approaches, and techniques which are useful in the design and operation of logistics systems and integrated supply chains. The material is taught from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on where and how specific tools can be used to improve the overall performance and reduce the total cost of a supply chain. We place a strong emphasis on the development and use of fundamental models to illustrate the underlying concepts involved in both intra and inter-company logistics operations.While our main objective is to develop and use models to help us analyze these situations, we will make heavy use of examples from industry to provide illustrations of the concepts in practice. This is neither a purely theoretical nor a case study course, but rather an analytical course that addresses real problems found in practice.

Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Fall 2009

(View Complete Item Description)

This course surveys operations research models and techniques developed for a variety of problems arising in logistical planning of multi-echelon systems. There is a focus on planning models for production/inventory/distribution strategies in general multi-echelon multi-item systems. Topics include vehicle routing problems, dynamic lot sizing inventory models, stochastic and deterministic multi-echelon inventory systems, the bullwhip effect, pricing models, and integration problems arising in supply chain management. Probability and linear programming experience required.
