Fields of Operations Research

Fields of Operations Research
Howard W. Kreiner

As analysts try to apply operations research techniques to complex problems, they can become confused as to the objective of operations research. By concentrating on techniques, they can lose sight of the primary purpose that is to improve actual operations and solve problems. Textbooks and papers describing techniques too often leave the reader without insights as to why a particular technique was chosen to represent reality. This book portrays operations research in action, through the eyes of an analyst, and the factors that shape an analysis along with the uncertainties and satisfactions that go with the job.
