ASW's Introduction to Management Science: A Quantitative Approach to Decision Making provides thorough, application-oriented coverage in a very readable writing style. This is the leading text on the market. Simply put, it's a classic! The problem-scenario approach introduces quantitative procedures through situations that include both problem formulation and technique application. The extensive linear programming coverage includes problem formulation, computer solution, and practical application. The text covers transportation, assignment, and the integer programming extension of linear programming, as well as advanced topics like waiting line models, simulation, and decision analysis. A large selection of problems includes self-test problems with complete solutions and case problems. Excel spreadsheet appendices are included as well.

I think it is a very good book and will continue to use it. I have selected ASW over other texts because it still covers the modeling and formulation aspects well. These are often obscured or absent in the spreadsheet-based texts.
The book provides a very good coverage of computer output. I have been using ASW Intro to MS for the last 15 years, and I have no intention of switching to another textbook.
