There is synergy between the diverse methodologies ofOperations Research and Management Science, and the many problems itseeks to solve. "Operation Research/Management Science at Work" isan example of that synergy. The principal aim of this book is toexamine selected recent research in and applications of OperationalResearch/Management Science. The focus is on research that is ofindustry interest and covers a wide range of topics from major fieldsof OR/MS in a systematic and coherent fashion. Each application ischosen to demonstrate the elegance of their implementations. The bookmeets the needs of applied researchers who are interested inapplications of OR/MS algorithms. Moreover, real world problemstogether with their solutions and implementations are the applicationsthat have been selected for the volume.The Asia Pacific region has embraced business applications of decisionsupport systems in recent years. Many of these applications have thestate of the art OR/MS techniques in this region embedded in them.Hence, the increased use of OR/MS techniques in this region providesopportunities for identifying methodological advances that are takingplace as a result of the unique nature of the applications. These alsoprovide opportunities for exploring synergies and interfaces thatexist between OR/MS, both in terms of applications and theoreticaladvances.
