IBM Applications and Techniques of Operations Research. A Selected Bibliography.
International Business Machines Corp., White Plains, NY. Data Processing Div.
This bibliography on the tools and applications of operations research, management science, industrial engineering, and systems engineering lists many entries which appeared between 1961 and 1966 in 186 periodicals and trade journals. Twenty-six texts in operations research are also listed along with an indication as to which of 37 techniques or methods they cover. A computer and automatic text processor were used to compile and prepare the bibliography. The section on periodicals and trade journals runs alphabetically through three kinds of entries: Industry areas (aerospace, agriculture, etc.), functional areas (prediction, inventory, etc.), and techniques (Bayes formula, linear programs, etc.). Entries under a specific industry tend to mention a problem area and a technique involved while entries under a specific technique usually involve industry functions or problems. Areas included in the bibliography that might be of particular interest to educators include computers, critical path (PERT), finance, operations research, education, and texts in operations research.
