uncertainty and make better estimates of what will happen in the future; this is the main purpose of forecasting. Some firms use subjective methods, seat-of-the pants methods, intuition, and experience. There are also several quantitative techniques, moving averages, exponential smoothing, trend projections...
In many practical problems, the decision variables actually make sense only if they have integer values. For example, it is often necessary to assign people, machines, and vehicles to activities in integer quantities. If requiring integer values is the only way in which a problem deviates from a linear...

and how it helps in dealing with problems involving uncertainty, complexity and conflict. Introduction to Operational Research OR is the representation of real-world systems by mathematical models together with the use of quantitative methods (algorithms) for solving such models, with a view to optimising...
which is very easy to use. Further, TORA is menu-driven and Windows-based which makes it very user friendly. The software can be executed in automated or tutorial mode. The automated mode reports the final solution of the problem, usually in the standard format followed in commercial packages, while...
