Operations Research

Mathematical theory have found applications in the field of operations management such as operations research (related to mathematics)

  • Mathematical Optimization - draws heavily from multivariate calculus and linear algebra
  • Queue theory - based on Markov chains, stochastic processes, and probability distribution.
  • Simulation - managers may resort to using simulation, when analytical models are not enough. Simulation has been traditionally done thought the Discrete event simulation paradigm.
  • Demand forecasting - even though it is not strictly speaking an operations problem, demand forecasting is a critical part of push systems, since order releases have to be planned ahead of actual clients orders.
