In the second edition of this highly-regarded text, the accessible application-driven approach that made the first edition so successful has been retained, whilst it has been streamlined and strengthened further to meet the needs of students across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. Packed with diverse realistic examples from Scotland to Saudi Arabia, this truly internationalized version of the landmark text from the Anderson, Sweeney and Williams team provides a comprehensive introduction to the subjects of Management Science and Operations Research.
