This course covers the basic of Program evaluation and review technique (PERT) & Critical Path Method (CPM) related to Mining and Mineral engineering situations. It is a part of quantitative decision making techniques, Optimization techniques and probabilistic approach. This course is basically designed to give a substantial understanding of the network analysis for mining/mineral and allied engineers or students. The course will start with the basics. Then it will cover the theoretical understanding of the problems along with a number of tutorials of simulated problems. Both the deterministic and probabilistic approach is covered in the syllabus. The software programming related to the network analysis will also be covered.
Week 1 : Introduction to PERT and CPM and basic understanding Week 2 : Detailed understanding of CPM and optimization techniques Week 3 : Detailed understanding of PERT and probabilistic approach Week 4 : Critical analysis of the networks, computer programming
