Decision Support Puzzles for Applied Mathematicians
The O.R. techniques used to solve these puzzles can be applied to a variety of situations commonly found in business and industry. Examples include resource distribution, product optimization, sales maximization, process simulation, and dozens of other applications. To inquire about how you can use these methods to problem-solve within your own organization, email me at puzzlOR@gmail.com. Consulting rates may apply.
The PuzzlOR is published bi-montly in ORMS Today and Analytics Magazine. It is written by John Toczek who works and lives in Philadelphia, PA. John earned his BSc. in Chemical Engineering at Drexel University (1996) and his MSc. in Operations Research from Virginia Commonwealth University (2005).
