Overview

There is synergy between the diverse methodologies of Operations Research and Management Science, and the many problems it seeks to solve. Operation Research/Management Science at Work is an example of that synergy. The principal aim of this book is to examine selected recent research in and applications of Operational Research/Management Science. The focus is on research that is of industry interest and covers a wide range of topics from major fields of OR/MS in a systematic and coherent fashion. Each application is chosen to demonstrate the elegance of their implementations. The book meets the needs of applied researchers who are interested in applications of OR/MS algorithms. Moreover, real world problems together with their solutions and implementations are the applications that have been selected for the volume.
The Asia Pacific region has embraced business applications of decision support systems in recent years. Many of these applications have the state of the art OR/MS techniques in this region embedded in them. Hence, the increased use of OR/MS techniques in this region provides opportunities for identifying methodological advances that are taking place as a result of the unique nature of the applications. These also provide opportunities for exploring synergies and interfaces that exist between OR/MS, both in terms of applications and theoretical advances.

Editorial Reviews

Twenty-six contributions together provide a summary of recent research and applications in Operations Research (OR)/Management Science (MS) in the Asia-Pacific region. Emphasis is placed on research having potential industrial applications; topics include the video placement and routing problem; a general framework for constructive meta-heuristics; search algorithms for nurse scheduling with genetic algorithms; design of adaptive self-navigated airship in simulated environment; a material planning model for mixed model assembly lines; hypersensitivity analysis of productivity measurement problems; and a planning system for precision farming based on an autonomous tractor. Intended for applied researchers interested in applications of OR/MS algorithms. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
