Summer Course Offerings
IE Online Courses, Summer 2013:
May 15 - June 21, 2013
IE 360 (400) Industrial Applications of Probability and Statistics 3(3,0)[Internet]
Introduces central concept that overall system performance can be improved by taking uncertainty into account, especially through the reduction of variability. Specific industrial applications, such as decision analysis, reliability and probabilistic inventory models, are emphasized. Preq: MTHSC 206.
IE 462/662 (400) Six Sigma Quality 3(3,0)[Internet]
Study of DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) elements of Six Sigma, project management, process analysis, quality function deployment, hypothesis testing, gage R&R, data analysis, multivari-analysis, design of experiments, statistical process control, and process capability analysis. Preq: EX ST 301, 411, I E 360, MTHSC 301, 302, or 309.
IE 487/687 (400) Industrial Safety 3(3,0)[Internet]
Recognition and prevention of hazards; recognition and control of hazardous materials; developing and managing a safety program; designing inherently safe equipment and workplaces. Preq: Junior standing.
Summer I & Summer II
May 15 - August 5, 2013
IE 384 (400) Engineering Economic Analysis 3(3,0)[Internet]
Basic principles and techniques of economic analysis of engineering projects. Consideration of time, value of money, short-and long-term investments, replacement analysis, depreciation methods, cost allocation, and measures of cost effectiveness. Preq: MTHSC 108
IE 457/657 (400) Transportation and Logistics Engineering 3(3,0)[Internet]
Introduces transportation and logistics systems analysis from both analytical and practical perspectives. Covers methods for identifying level-of-service metrics and measuring system performance. Discusses key aspects of modeling, simulation, and other techniques for economic and quantitative analysis of transportation and logistics planning issues. Preq: Senior standing in engineering, science, or management program; MTHSC 102 or 106
June 26 - August 5, 2013
IE 361 (400) Industrial Quality Control 3(3,0) [Internet]
Introduces central concept that apparent conflict between productivity and quality can be resolved through improvements in processes by introducing statistical thinking. Specific industrial applications, such as (static) simulation, quality control and reliability models, are emphasized. Preq: I E 360.
IE 381 (001) Methods of Operational Research II 3(3,0) [On Campus]
Probabilistic modeling of engineering systems. Topics include calculus-based probability, decision analysis, Markov processes, queuing, and reliability.Preq:IE 280, 360.
IE 488/688 (400) Human Factors Engineering 3(3,0) [Internet]
Introduction to human performance and limitations in the design of effective and efficient systems. Covers issues related to changes in technology, impact of design on society, ethical issues in design of systems, and the cost benefits from designing systems and environments that often challenge perceived notions of benefits.Preq: Junior standing; MTHSC 102 or 106.
