Intended for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students, this textbook begins with a review of calculus and probability and then progresses through the field's standard topics—uncertainty, inventory models, markov chains, deterministic and probabilistic dynamic programming, queuing, simulation, optimization, option pricing and real options, forecasting models, and stochastic control. The concepts are illustrated through applications from manufacturing, finance, and operations. A companion CD-ROM contains ProcessModel, Palisades Decision Tools Suite, RiskOptimizer, and Premium Solver for Education. Winston teaches at Indiana University.
