Operations Research is the discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. It helps the management to achieve its goals by using scientific techniques, making the study and understanding of operations research even more important in the present-day scenario. This book has been written with the objective of providing students with a comprehensive textbook on the subject. It follows a simple algorithmic approach to explain each concept, often giving different steps. This approach stems from the author's experience in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students of Madras University and Anna University, Chennai, over many years.
One of the highlights of this book is the solved-problems approach, as each chapter in the book is substantiated by a large number of solved problems. Many of the questions that have been incorporated are from previous examination papers of various universities. In addition, each chapter has numerous exercise problems at the end and a section on short questions with answers.

• Thoroughly revised and updated
• New chapter ';Non-Linear Programming Problem' to cover the Anna University syllabus for ME and MBA
• Inclusion of another method - the Stepping Stone Method - which can solve the problem of degeneracy in the transportation problem

• Simple and concise presentation of fundamentals
• Solved problems from university questions papers
• Step-by-step explanations and solutions to problems
• Large number of solved examples interwoven throughout the text to reinforce the concepts
