Fundamentals of algorithmic programming for Operations Management


About this course

  • variables and types
  • operators and expressions
  • conditional statements, loops and functions
  • Data preparation and reporting
  • Integration with tools and libraries
  • Basic algorithms for searching, sorting, and optimizing

Learning outcomes

After successfully completing this course, the student:

  • understands the following programming constructs:

o variables and types,
o operators and expressions,
o conditional statements,
o loops,
o functions,
o data structures;

  • can apply these constructs, to create algorithms that solve simple operations management problems, such as loading data from a file system and from the web, preparing data for further processing (filtering and transforming data elements);
  • can programmatically integrate existing tools and libraries for simple practical operations management problems, such as configuring and invoking a data analysis library;
  • can use basic algorithms for searching, sorting and optimization to solve operations management problems;
  • can demonstrate by means of an automated test suite to which degree algorithmic correctness has been verified
