Aus dem Vorwort der Autoren: “ bereits in früheren Auflagen sind uns auch bei dieser Auflage der Motivationscharakter und die Einfachheit der Ausführungen wichtiger als exakte Beweise und technische Freiheiten. Wir glauben, dass die vorliegende Auflage für den praxisorientierten Studenten, auch ohne große mathematische Kenntnisse, attraktiver und besser lesbar geworden ist. Dennoch sind wir der Meinung, dass die Theorie der Operations Research nur von der mathematischen Seite her wirklich verstanden und gewürdigt werden kann. Es ist daher auch die fünfte Auflage nach wie vor an den gleichen Leserkreis wie die früheren Auflagen gerichtet, an die Studenten verschiedenster Fachrichtungen (Ingenieurswesen, Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften sowie mathematische Wissenschaften), die sich manchmal angesichts des riesigen Wortschwalls ihrer Studiengebiete nach einem bißchen mathematischer Klarheit sehnen. Die einzelnen Kapitel lassen sich auf vielfältige Art und Weise zu Kursen oder zum Selbststudium zusammenstellen, da das Buch sehr flexibel angelegt ist. Teil eins liefert eine Einführung in die Thematik des Operations Research. Teil zwei (über lineare Programmierung) und auch Teil drei (über mathematische Programmierung) lassen sich unabhängig von Teil vier (über stochastische Modelle) durcharbeiten.“

Decision Making in Systems Engineering and Management is a comprehensive textbook that provides a logical process and analytical techniques for fact-based decision making for the most challenging systems problems. Grounded in systems thinking and based on sound systems engineering principles, the systems decisions process (SDP) leverages multiple objective decision analysis, multiple attribute value theory, and value-focused thinking to define the problem, measure stakeholder value, design creative solutions, explore the decision trade off space in the presence of uncertainty, and structure successful solution implementation. In addition to classical systems engineering problems, this approach has been successfully applied to a wide range of challenges including personnel recruiting, retention, and management; strategic policy analysis; facilities design and management; resource allocation; information assurance; security systems design; and other settings whose structure can be conceptualized as a system.

Uniquely blends mathematical theory and algorithm design forunderstanding and modeling real-world problems Optimization modeling and algorithms are key components toproblem-solving across various fields of research, from operationsresearch and mathematics to computer science and engineering.Addressing the importance of the algorithm design process.Deterministic Operations Research focuses on the design ofsolution methods for both continuous and discrete linearoptimization problems. The result is a clear-cut resource forunderstanding three cornerstones of deterministic operationsresearch: modeling real-world problems as linear optimizationproblem; designing the necessary algorithms to solve theseproblems; and using mathematical theory to justify algorithmicdevelopment. Treating real-world examples as mathematical problems, theauthor begins with an introduction to operations research andoptimization modeling that includes applications form sportsscheduling an the airline industry. Subsequent chapters discussalgorithm design for continuous linear optimization problems,covering topics such as convexity. Farkas’ Lemma, and thestudy of polyhedral before culminating in a discussion of theSimplex Method. The book also addresses linear programming dualitytheory and its use in algorithm design as well as the Dual SimplexMethod. Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition, and a primal-dual interiorpoint algorithm. The final chapters present network optimizationand integer programming problems, highlighting various specializedtopics including label-correcting algorithms for the shortest pathproblem, preprocessing and probing in integer programming, liftingof valid inequalities, and branch and cut algorithms. Concepts and approaches are introduced by outlining examplesthat demonstrate and motivate theoretical concepts. The accessiblepresentation of advanced ideas makes core aspects easy tounderstand and encourages readers to understand how to think aboutthe problem, not just what to think. Relevant historical summariescan be found throughout the book, and each chapter is designed asthe continuation of the “story” of how to both modeland solve optimization problems by using the specificproblems-linear and integer programs-as guides. The book’svarious examples are accompanied by the appropriate models andcalculations, and a related Web site features these models alongwith Maple™ and MATLAB® content for the discussedcalculations. Thoroughly class-tested to ensure a straightforward, hands-onapproach, Deterministic Operations Research is an excellentbook for operations research of linear optimization courses at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as aninsightful reference for individuals working in the fields ofmathematics, engineering, computer science, and operations researchwho use and design algorithms to solve problem in their everydaywork.
