The text presents just the right amount of theory to ensure you understand the foundation of the topic, followed by exercises that give you practical, hands-on experience with the methodologies. Drawing examples and problems from finance, marketing, operations management, and other areas, the text illustrates how management science applies to your chosen profession--and how you can use it on the job. The authors emphasize modeling over algebraic formulations and memorization of particular models. The text includes access to Palisade DecisionTools Suite (BigPicture, @RISK, PrecisionTree, StatTools, TopRank, NeuralTools, and Evolver) as well as SolverTable, which allows you to do sensitivity analysis on optimization models.
