Description : The author have used numerical examples as the means for presentation of the underlying ideas of different operations research techniques.Accordingly,a large number of comprehensive solved examples,taken from a variety of fields,have been added in every chapter and they are followed by a set of unsolved problems with answers(and hints wherever required)through which readers can test their understanding of the subject matter.The book,in its present form,contains around 650,examples,1,280 illustrative diagrams.
Description : Operations Research is the discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. It helps the management to achieve its goals by using scientific techniques, making the study and understanding of operations research even more important in the present day scenario. This book has been written with the objective of providing students with a comprehensive textbook on the subject. It follows a simple algorithmic approach to explain each concept, often giving different steps. This approach stems from the author’s experience in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students of Madras University and Anna University, Chennai, over many years. One of the highlights of this book is the solved-problems approach, as each chapter in the book is substantiated by a large number of solved problems. Many of the questions that have been incorporated are from previous examination papers of various universities. In addition, each chapter has numerous exercise problems at the end and a section on short questions with answers.
Description : Operations Research: Theory and Applications, is a comprehensive text for courses in Quantitative Methods, Operations Research, Management Science, Analytical Methods for Decision-Making, and other related subjects. This fourth edition of the book further
Description : Operation Research has emerged as the most spectacular aspect of optimization techniques. Practising professionals usually rate operations research as the most useful subjects studied in college. Operations Research is designed for the students of industrial engineering and management. This book comprises 12 chapters and provides the introduction of each chapter and various problems of real practical situation in the organizations as well as in daily life.
Description : Profiles in Operations Research: Pioneers and Innovators recounts the development of the field of Operations Research (OR), the science of decision making. The book traces the development of OR from its military origins to a mature discipline that is recognized worldwide for its contributions to managerial planning and complex global operations. Over the past six decades, OR analyses have impacted our daily lives: when making an airline or hotel reservation, waiting in line at a bank, getting the correctly blended fuel at the gas station, and ensuring that the book you are holding arrived at its destination on time. OR originated in the late 1930s when British scientists from various disciplines joined Royal Air Force officers to determine the most effective way to employ new radar technology for intercepting enemy aircraft. During World War II, similar applied research groups were formed to study, test, and evaluate military operations on both sides of the Atlantic. Their work resulted in great improvements—OR helped the Allies win the war. The scientific field that emerged from these studies was called operational research in the U.K. and operations research in the U.S. Today, OR provides a broad and powerful science to aid decision making. Profiles describes the lives and contributions of 43 OR pioneers and innovators and relates how these individuals, with varying backgrounds and diverse interests, were drawn to the nascent field of OR. The profiles also describe how OR techniques and applications expanded considerably beyond the military context to find new domains in business and industry. In addition to their scientific contributions, these profiles capture the life stories of the individuals—interwoven with personal tales, vivid vignettes, family backgrounds, and views of the mission and future of OR. Collectively, the profiles recount the fascinating story of the growth and development of a field enriched by the convergence of different disciplines. The Editors: Arjang A.

From the Reviews Profiles In Operations Research: Pioneers and Innovators. Book Review by Nigel Cummings: U.K. OR Society's e-journal, Inside OR., Sept 2011. "I can thoroughly recommend this book. I found it both enlighteningand undeniably gripping, so much so in fact, you may find it difficultto put it down once you have commenced reading it. Arjang A. Assad and Saul I. Gass have created a masterwork whichwill serve to immortalise [stet] the pioneers of O.R. for many years to come." *For a list of all known typos, plus further discussion on the book, please visit http://profilesinoperationsresearch.com.
