Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is the second edition of the popular book. … The book can be used for developing courses for business, management or industrial engineering students. Some developed models are useful not only for teaching purposes but can be immediately applied by practitioners. … This will be of special value to researchers and PhD students." (Vitaly A. Strusevich, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1140, 2008)

1st of all, I am a computer science guy trying to self-acquire knowledge on Operation Research, primarily in the Linear Programming field.
This book provides a good introduction to Mathematical Notation used for modeling, basic models for mrp, MRPII and gradually improve the models to capture more complex business requirements.
I have read a couple of Optimization book, but none has such great clarity in the explanation of 'why' in the part-art, part-science of modeling.

I will give 6 stars if Amazon allows it.

I would formulate many of the models differently. Especially w.r.t. equations related to inventory, the optimization models contain formulations that are not reflecting best practices.

Apart from this, this is a nice introduction, although I would have liked to see more meat in the models (the models stay at the very elementary level).
