Preface

It is hard to believe that POM-QM for Windows (formerly DS for Windows) has been in existence, first as a DOS program and then as a Windows program, for over 15 years. It seems like we have been using both minicomputers and Windows forever but in fact large-scale Windows usage has been for less than a decade. At the time that I finished the original DOS Version, few students had personal computers or knew what an ISP was. Today, since a large majority of students have their own computers this software is even more valuable than it has ever been.

The original goal in developing software was to provide students with the most user-friendly package available for production/operations management, quantitative methods, management science, and operations research. We are gratified by the response to the previous versions of POM-QM for Windows indicating that we have clearly met our goal.

QM for Windows (Version 1.0) was first distributed in the summer of 1996 while a separate but similar program, POM for Windows (Version 1.1) was first distributed in the fall of 1996. DS for Windows, which contained all of the modules in both POM and QM and also came with a printed manual was first distributed in 1997. Version 2 of all three programs was created for Windows 95 and distributed in the fall of 1999.

For this new version, version 3, we have collapsed the three former products into one product named POM-QM for Windows. For consistency with past versions, when using Prentice-Hall texts it is possible to install the program as POM for Windows or QM for Windows and to display the POM for Windows or QM for Windows module menu. Regardless of the name of the desktop icon all of the modules are available to all users. We will refer to the product as POM-QM...
