About the book

The authors have created a number of textbooks for Management Science, Quantitative Methods, and Operations Research college courses. The Quantitative Methods Software (QMS) applications which are the subject of this website were created as a supplement to the books. The most recent edition is Quantitative Methods for Management (3rd ed.), from Thomson Custom Publishing.

The Solutions Manual and Workbook is also available.

It is the authors' express wish that you derive tangible value from the use of the QMS applications.
