This text's emphasis is on presenting management science in a manner that is managerially focused and easily understood by students. This is done in part by using easy-to-understand examples demonstrating each technique in understandable contexts. The text is application oriented dealing with realistic problems emphasizing model formulation, computer-based solutions, and implementation of model results. The text uses models related to managerial application, which are used to demonstrate management science techniques. Techniques are illustrated by examples placed in a decision-making context. Model use is demonstrated by the computer without being tied to specific computer systems. The text presents a comprehensive yet easily readable coverage of all important management science techniques.

The purpose of this text is to provide the student with a comprehensive coverage of how management science concepts and approaches can be applied to improve management decision-making. The emphasis is on the translation of mathematical modeling concepts into a presentation that is palatable to the undergraduate student of business with limited mathematical background. ManageŽment science topics are introduced by presenting realistic, practical examples in the form of small case studies. Difficult techniques are presented within the framework of working examples, stressing an intuitive understanding of concepts in the decision support perspective rather than focusing on mathematical techniques for their own sake.About the Author:
