Learn today's management science concepts and techniques from a leader in the field. The key purpose of this book is to provide a sound conceptual understanding of the role that management science plays in the decision-making process. AN INTRODUCTION TO MANAGEMENT SCIENCE is applications-oriented and continues to use the problem-scenario approach that has been a hallmark feature of each edition, in which a problem is described in conjunction with the management science model that's introduced. The model is then solved to generate a solution and recommendation to management.
