Operations Research is considered to be a foundation subject for Production and Operations Management. Though that is the case the application of OR is wide ranging from Computer Science to Finance to Engineering to ...
As per wikipedia,
operations research, is an interdisciplinary mathematical science that focuses on the effective use of technology by organizations. In contrast, many other science & engineering disciplines focus on technology giving secondary considerations to its use.
Linear Programming, Transportation & Assignment Problems, Network Flows and Non Linear Programming are some of the areas in Operations Research.
I found the subject to be interesting, but little tough and its hard to explain or have some notes in a single post. Hence I am providing some of the links to the most simple, helpful and preservable resources available in the net.
