Question;Please respond to the following;?;Please go over the entire syllabus.;List three things you may already know something about and three things you;wish to know more about, in the content of the course.;Week2;In your own words, explain how to obtain the ?expected;value of perfect information? for any payoff table, which has probabilities;associated with each state of nature. Then, provide an example, drawing from;any of the payoff tables in Problems 1-17 in the back of Chapter 12. If no;probabilities are given for the states of nature, then assume equal likelihood.;Q;Week 3;Discuss Simulation;Select one (1) of the following;topics for your primary discussion posting;?;Identify the part of setting up a;simulation in Excel that you find to be the most challenging, and explain why.;Identify resources that can help you with that.;?;Explain how simulation is used in the;real world. Provide a specific example from your own line of work, or a line of;work that you find particularly interesting.;Week 4 discussion;Discuss Forecasting Methods;Select one (1) of the following;topics for your primary discussion posting;?;Identify any challenges you have in;setting up a time-series analysis in Excel. Explain what they are and why they;are challenging. Identify resources that can help you with that.;?;Explain how forecasting is used in;the real world. Provide a specific example from your own line of work, or a;line of work that you find particularly interesting.;Week 5;Reflection to date" Please respond;to the following;?;In a paragraph, reflect on what;you've learned so far in this course. Identify the most interesting;unexpected, or useful thing you've learned and explain why;Week 6 Discussion;COLLAPSE;Top of Form;?;Discuss LP Models;Select one (1) of the following topics for your primary discussion;posting;?;The objective function always;includes all of the decision variables, but that is not necessarily true of the;constraints. Explain the difference between the objective function and the;constraints. Then, explain why a constraint need not refer to all the variables.;?;Pick any constraint from any problem;in the text, and explain how to plot the line that corresponds to that;constraint.;Bottom of Form;Week 7;Discuss sensitivity analysis;Select one (1) of the following;topics for your primary discussion posting;?;Identify any challenges you have in;setting up a linear programming problem in Excel, and solving it with Solver.;Explain exactly what the challenges are and why they are challenging. Identify;resources that can help you with that.;?;Explain what the shadow price means;in a maximization problem. Explain what this tells us from a management;perspective.;Week 8;Practice;setting up linear programming models for business applications;Select an even-numbered LP problem from the text;excluding 14, 20, 22, 36 (which are part of your homework assignment).;Formulate a linear programming model for the problem you select.;Week 9;discussion;Week 9;Discussion;Discuss;characteristics of integer programming problems;Select;one (1) of the following topics for your primary discussion posting;? Explain;how the applications of Integer programming differ from those of linear;programming. Give specific instances in which you would use an integer;programming model rather than an LP model. Provide real-world examples.;?;Identify any challenges you have in setting up an integer programming problem;in Excel, and solving it with Solver. Explain exactly what the challenges are;and why they are challenging. Identify resources that can help you with that.;Week 10;discussion;Week 10 Discussion;Discussion;assignment and transshipment problems;Select;one (1) of the following topics for your primary discussion posting;?
