About The Book

Various techniques described in this book have been developed over a period of time, more prominently since World War II (thanks to many bright brains), but a lucid, easily understandable and comprehensive use in business hers. So that the management students and industry managers both can grasp the techniques easily and are tempted to use them, when they find it `simple to use`. Algorithms used in the book help the use of softwares in various areas of business. I am greatly indebted to many authors, whose work has been a source of information to me.

Another aspect of this presentation is the fact that the author has been a "man on the ground" a practicing manger in additions to being a teacher since 1968 and has physically used these techniques extensively for business decisions and it sis strongly recommended that these techniques be used for actual results, the financial impact on saving will be apparent. Usefulness of the book will be fully justified, if the author can help student in their comprehension and managers in their applications. So contribute to the national cause, wherever you can.
