Inventory Models and Network Modeling in Industrial Engineering is a free online course that teaches the fundamental theories and applications of inventories as well as the network modeling approach in industrial engineering. This course will introduce you to the functions, tools, techniques, and applications of Inventory models and network modeling in industrial engineering. You will also learn about the quantity and re-order model that can be applied in consumption, as well as the demand rate situation. You will learn how to use the quantity and recorder model in situations where demand is not fixed, as well as how effective the technique is in production.

This course will also learn about the Network Modelling used in Project Management as well as the understanding of the network modeling techniques. You will also be introduced to project management in relation to Network modeling, as well as the PERT Network Model and its applications. Cost minimization, resource utilization as well as maximization of productivity, and maximizing output using the PERT model will also be highlighted in the topic. You will also learn how to determine the probability for completion of the project at a particular time, as well as how to calculate the various time-values and total project duration.

This course analyzes different inventory models for optimization, determining the critical path method, and how to estimate the optimistic and pessimistic times. This free online course will be of significant interest to students, researchers, manufacturers, and anyone with an interest in studying industrial engineering tools and requirements. So, register for this course today and enhance your understanding of industrial engineering principles and techniques.
