• Clarifications

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Monday 20 May 2019, 04:52:56 PM.

    There was some confusion on what the fields were referring to. Here is an explanation:

    • "project" is the total project mark out of 25
    • "term100" is the sum of assignment and project marks scaled to 100
    • "exam100" is the exam mark out of 100 (My apologies, I didn't make that available earlier)
    • "final" is the overall score. This has to be 50 or more to pass the course. Note that harmonic mean was used to compute "final" from "term100" and "exam100", see course outline for the details.

  • Project, Exam and provisional final results are available

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Monday 20 May 2019, 02:08:12 PM.

    You can view your project, exam and provisional final results on the course website. Please note that:

    • The project is marked out of 25
    • The exam is marked out of 100
    • The provisional final results is out of 100. If your final is 50 or over, you have passed.

    Please note that the final results are calculated based on an harmonic average formula, see the course outline for details. Please also note that the final results are provisional because the School has not approved them.

    If you would like to view your exam paper, you can come to my office (608/K17) between 11:15am-12:15pm on Thur 23 May 2019.

    If you cannot come during the above time slot, you can email me for an appointment.

    All the best!

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Saturday 27 April 2019, 12:04:11 PM.

    Thanks for those who have signed up for the project interview. If you haven't done so, please do it as soon as possible.

    Information for signing up is available on the project web page.

  • Signing up for project interview

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Wednesday 24 April 2019, 09:31:16 AM.

    As stated in the project spec, you are asked to attend an interview in Week 11. During the interview, you are expected to complete the following 2 tasks:

    • Run your simulation code using your wrapper file through a number of test cases
    • To reproduce a set of simulation results that you have submitted

    The interview will be conducted in a CSE consultation room in Building K17. As mentioned in the spec, the interview will be conducted using your submitted code on a CSE computer. We won't accept any code other than the code submitted. You need to ensure your code does run on a CSE computer.

    You can now sign up for the project interview. Each interview slot lasts for 10 minutes. Note that there are two sign-up links for two interview groups. You only have to choose one slot from either group. You can find the sign-up links in the project webpage on the course website.

  • Project / assignment / lecture / consultation

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Wednesday 20 March 2019, 07:50:15 PM.

    The project spec has been released. You will find it under "Course Work" at the course website. You should be able to get the first part of the project started because we have already gone through how to do discrete event simulations.

    Please note the following:

    • There were some updates on the assignment specs.
    • There is a slight change in the lecture schedule. The lecture on discrete event simulation (2) has been moved to Week 6. Week 5B is on mean value analysis instead.
    • Lecturer's consultation time for this week has changed. As I mentioned before, you should always check the schedule on the course website because consultation time can change.

  • Assignment submission

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Thursday 07 March 2019, 09:12:08 AM.

    The assignment submission link is now opened. If you click on "Assignment" on the menu on the course website, you will find a "Make submission" tab.

  • Assignment (Update) and consultation

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Tuesday 05 March 2019, 07:18:08 AM.

    Please note that there was an error in assignment released yesterday. Version 1.1 of the assignment is now on the course website. Please make sure you check the assignment page regularly to see whether there are updates because I won't be announcing all the updates.

    Lecturer's consultation begins this week. You can find the details under the Timetable link on the course web page.

  • Assignment

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Monday 04 March 2019, 11:31:14 AM.

    The assignment is now available on the course website.

    Please note that the submission link is not ready yet. I will send a notice out after it has been set up.

  • Lectures 1B and 1A

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Wednesday 20 February 2019, 12:23:25 PM.

    Please note that the slides for Lecture 1B have been uploaded.

    You probably have noticed that I blocked some text in the lecture slides for Lecture 1A. This was so that I could give you some exercises to do in class or I could ask questions. I have uploaded another file for Lecture 1A without blocking to the course website. This is the mode of operations that you can expect for this course:

    • The lecture notes released before the lecture may have some text or materials blocked.
    • If blocking is used, a new file without blocking will be released after the lecture.

    See you tomorrow (Thur).

    P.S. There will be another set of lecture notes for the second lecture of Week 1, it will be called Week 1B. It will be available early next week.
