Develops concepts and methods of system analysis and design by using the systems approach and a mathematical model. Illustrates these notions by problem types likely to be encountered in practice. Emphasizes the full range of socio-economic factors which have a bearing on the solution of multi-disciplinary problems. Provides computer subroutine examples complete with brief documentation.Time-sharing computing systems are of particular value in this type of analysis. ... Finally, in many systems, although much may be done mathematically to obtain an optimal solution, it frequently happens that decisions have to be made in the face of uncertainty and Chapter 1 1 ...
