Introduction to Management Science:Global Edition

Description

For undergraduate or graduate courses in Management Science, Quantitative Methods, and Decision Modeling.

 

This title is a Pearson Global Edition.  The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.  

 

Introduction to Management Science shows students how to approach decision-making problems in a straightforward, logical way. 

 

By focusing on simple, straightforward explanations and examples with step-by-step details of the modeling and solution techniques, this text makes the mathematical topics of Management Science less complex.

 

The tenth edition retains the same readability and accessibility to techniques and applications as the widely-adopted previous editions, and also includes updated Excel spreadsheets, Excel “Add-ins”, and new problems and case studies.


Features

For undergraduate or graduate courses in Management Science, Quantitative Methods, and Decision Modeling.

The tenth edition retains the same readability and accessibility to techniques and applications as the widely-adopted previous editions, and also includes updated Excel spreadsheets, Excel “Add-ins”, and new problems and case studies.

 

UPDATED! Spreadsheet Problem Solving Updated for Excel 2007: In order to aid students in learning practical skills through the most up-to-date version of this widely-used spreadsheet program, this edition includes new spreadsheets for Excel 2007.

 

UPDATED! Excel Add-ins for Excel 2007: On an accompanying CD-ROM, the addition of various updated Excel add-ins makes creating and using spreadsheets easier for students. 

 

Step-by-step Solved Examples: In the end-of-chapter material, the logical and detailed breakdown of this text's many examples provides students with the information they need to effectively solve problems outside of the classroom.

 

NEW! Updated Cases and Problems: Previous editions of the text always provided a substantial number of homework questions, problems and cases. To give students all the latest information they need to effectively solve problems:

·         30 out of 750 homework questions are new

·         10 out of 62 end-of-chapter have been updated

 

Management Science Application Boxes: These boxes show students how the concepts covered in each chapter apply in the business world.

 

Marginal Notes: These notes highlight, summarize, and briefly define important topics, key terms, and concepts.

 

NEW! Global cases and problems: This text includes eighty new problems which allow students to practice management science ideas outside the classroom.
