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.

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)
