OS3081 Systems Analysis Cases I

This is the first course in a three-course sequence in systems analysis practice. This course focuses on learning from real defense systems analysis case histories through readings, discussion, and writing point papers. Emphasis is on understanding the pitfalls of analysis, highlighting critical assumptions, and recognition of the strengths and weaknesses of applied analytical methodologies. Case histories include actual defense studies conducted with large-scale warfare simulations, seminar wargaming, and other methodologies common in DoD studies and analysis. PREREQUISITES: Graduate standing in Systems Analysis, Operations Research, or Systems Engineering; completion of courses in probability, statistics, simulation, uncertainty modeling, cost-benefit, decision analysis, and optimization.

Prerequisite
