Network Analysis For Mines And Mineral Engineering

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur and NPTEL via Swayam

This course may be unavailable.


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. INTENDED AUDIENCE: Student from B. Tech in Mining Engineering, Mineral Engineering, Mining Machinery Engineering, All M.Tech related to above B. Tech programs and Ph. D studentsPREREQUISITES: None INDUSTRY SUPPORT: All Mining Industries send their Engineers/Managers to attend similar courses conducted mostly by Management Institutes/IE Departments. They mau think of this online course
