Simulation-based Planning and Scheduling

I’ve tried to divide the weekly material (nominally 150 minutes/week) into “lectures” and “video modules.” The lectures below are unedited (sorry) recordings of my live lectures, and the video modules are all pre-recorded and have been edited (somewhat). I’ve also tried to include any files that I provide the class and assignments. Here’s the course syllabus for your reference. Weekly lectures are on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. CST — look for them to be posted Tuesday evenings.
