Product Description

Review

"This adaptation does well in making the material much more international, and maintains the easy-to-follow approach that made the original US text such a successful book." --Julia Bennell, University of Southampton

"The newly incorporated material works well and helps to make this adaptation a better-written textbook for an international audience. As with the original, the strengths of the text lie in the significant array of methods covered, the easy to understand terminology, and the range of practice questions included." --David J. Newlands

"Based on my teaching experience, this textbook is excellent. The authors have done a marvellous job addressing all key topics in a very clear and coherent manner. The internationally diverse examples are a welcome addition, making it more friendly for my students; they no longer have to think about Management Science from a purely US perspective." --Yuan Ju, University of York

Excellent text and guide to computer solutions. 6 July 1999
By JDean46109@AOL.COM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I used Anderson and Sweeney's text in an MBA quatitative analysis course at the University of Arkansas. Anderson and Sweeney also provide a study guide and solutions manual which are very helpful. A computer program called the Management Scientist is available which allows you to solve linear programming as well as other operational research problems. Many problems are solved using Lotus 1-2-3 and Microsoft's Excel Solver are presented. Overall, it is a excellent learning tool.

katz 19 April 2005
By katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Trust Me. This is the only book that you'll need to get started started in this area. The authors have done an excellent job in producing such a work, that takes care to explain all the details of management science.

I used this text for my professional exams (CIMA) and the it was great. All the chapters in this book are cleanly written to take that I doesn't leave anything unexplained. However, the following chapters are the ones that I like the most in this book:

1. Introduction to LP

2. LP: Sensitivity Analysis: Amazing work here.

3. LP Applications: formulation of problems in this chapter may be bit difficult at first, but keep reading and you'll learn and appreciate the work that the authors have put in.

4. LP - Simplex Method: My favorite chapter. Is highly readable. This one chapter alone is worth the book.

5. LP - Simplex Sensitivity.

6. Integer LP

7. Project Scheduling - Great, well written chapter, another favorite of mine.

8. Decision Analysis - Good but the problems are repetative.

9. Markov Process - An introduction only, but the application of markov process to accounts receivable anlaysis is very useful for anyone wondering about the applications of markov processes.

Overall a great book that is worth its price.

Good program with textbook 22 Aug. 2007
By Chelle4829 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I had to use this text for a sophmore level management science course. While the book is extensively detailed, it is written for graduate school level course work. The program that comes with the text is much more useful for the undergrad student tackling business statistics.
