Operations Research (OR) has grown rapidly ; in technique, in personnel, and, most important, in the types of problems it investigates and the maturity it brings to their solution. Yet it still requires a tremendous amount of faith on the part of the executive to introduce it into a company. It is the purpose of this book to reduce that faith. It is certain that the executive in every industry should know what Operations Research can do, how it does it, and what is likely to be involved if it is involved. Includes an Index.
