With an emphasis placed on the formulation and applications aspects, this text provides coverage of the theory, applications and computations of operations research techniques. Numerical examples are the main vehicle for explaining new ideas, with each numeric example followed by a set of problems. This edition contains much new material, including: Floyd's shortest route algorithm, goal programming, analytic hierarchy approach, review of propability, probabilistic DP, and simulation modelling, as well as updated versions of TORA software and the simulation language SIMNET II. More than 1,000 problems are examined in the text.
