CSC370 Process Modeling

This course instructs students on strategies and intuition regarding how to reduce a reality to a computer model. It attempts to give students a broad perspective that exceeds simple business process modeling by including topics and modeling theories such as discrete-event simulation, queuing theory, finite element analysis, information theory, Game Theory and Bayesian mechanisms. Students learn to reason about models, including identifying model fidelity and weaknesses for various domains. This broad approach is intended to give students an intuitional understanding of modeling that prepares the student to embrace modeling as a significant strategy in industry problem solving.
