The fifth edition text focuses on business situations, including prominent non-mathematical issues, the use spreadsheets, and involves model formulation and assessment more than model structuring. The text has three key elements: modeling, case studies, and spreadsheets. In addition to examples, nearly every chapter includes one or two case studies patterned after actual applications to convey the whole process of applying management science.
