Network Analysis for Mines and Mineral Engineering

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam


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
