Applied Management Science

Logo for Applied Management Science
Decision-Making is central to human activity. Thus, we are all decision-makers. However, a "good" decision making starts with a consecutive-focused-thinking process that encompasses many disciplines of study. This site offers information on applied management science and an introduction to general operations research. It describes deterministic; and probabilistic models; lists books on operations research and management science; and links to related Web sites.

I spent an hour going through the material. Dr. Arsham explains in detail, the
need for making good strategic decisions which is what Management Science is all
about. He discusses OR/MS/DS modelling process and how it can be an effective
tool for solving/improving problems in an organization. He also includes the
historical basis for the study of Management Science. This site provides good
information on quantitative analysis and would be useful for students in
Business Management and Marketing.
