Operations Research is defined as a discipline that deals with the applications of advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions.

The term management sciences and analytics are sometimes used as synonyms for operations research.Employing techniques from other mathematical sciences such as Mathematical Modelling, Statistical Analysis and Mathematical Optimization, operations research arrives at optimal or near-optimal solutions to complex decision-making problems.

The present volume is intended as a textbook keeping in view the needs of the undergraduate students of various universities of India.

The book is divided into ten chapters: “Overview, highlights the nature, scope and limitations of operations research, classification of different operations research models; Formulation of Linear Programming Problems and their solutions using Graphical Method; Simplex Algorithm to solve Linear Programming Problems; Duality of Linear Programming Problems and its solutions; Game Theory; Queuing Theory; Simulation, Techniques of Network Scheduling by PERT/CPM; Probability and its Distribution”.
