11:01 pm 
For All Practical Purposes: Introduction to Contemporary Mathematics  "Management Science Overview"  Management science is the study of scheduling (people, workflow) in order to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. Algorithms are used to generate accurate and optimal solutions to problems involving street networks (garbage collection, postal deliveries), scheduling (airlines), and routing problems (salespeople, telephone relays). This overview conveys the scope and applicability of management science concepts. D
