Quantitative Development of Operations Research and Management Science
The HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF OPERATIONS RESEARCH AND MANAGEMENT SCIENCE will provide—for the first time—a historical context for the entire field of Operations Research/Management Science. This enables each researcher, student, and practitioner to put their own work (which is only part of the broader OR/MS domain in the Applied Sciences) into a historical perspective.
OPERATIONS RESEARCH AND MANAGEMENT SCIENCE: A History of the New Approach to Problems (Volume 1) provides a broad understanding including the OR/MS approach to problems, the scope of problem-solving methodologies across the specific methodologies in the field and the modeling advances with the appropriate mathematical tools illustrated.
QUALITATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF OR/MS (Volume 2) outlines the development of the qualitative (non-mathematical) approach to OR/MS in the historical context of the field.
QUANTITATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF OR/MS (Volume 3) charts the development of the quantitative advances (progress) in OR/MS. The volume uses the classical work of the pioneers to better understand the current state-of-the-art in the quantitative school.
