The statistical analysis of numerical information is proven to be a powerful tool, providing businesses with everyday insight into matters like corporate finance, manufacturing processes, service provision and product quality control.
However, the advent of the Internet of Things, the consequential growth in Big Data, and the ever-increasing business requirements to model and predict, mean that many of the analytical opportunities and needs of a modern, high performing company cannot be met using conventional data analysis methods alone.
More and more companies are wrestling with complex modelling and simulation problems, addressing matters like trying to optimise production systems, to maximise performance efficiency, to minimise operating costs, to combat risk, to detect fraud and to predict future behaviour and outcomes.
This OXFORD Management Centre online training course is 100% computer-based and shows by example how to use Microsoft Excel to solve a series of complex and realistic business problems. The problems are drawn from the widest possible range of applications – from robotics to refining, from supply chain logistics to production optimisation and from financial risk management to the efficient provision of healthcare. All the problems are different and all convey carefully designed learning objectives.
Delegates will learn how to code and simulate realistic problems and then how to use these simulations to understand system operation, to optimise performance, and to predict future behaviour. The online training course is intended for people who are experienced in conventional data analysis techniques, and who now want to become specialist in the modelling and simulation of complex business activities.
