An Annotated and Indexed Bibliography of Management Science Applications to Academic Administration.
White, Gregory P.
A bibliography that classifies and describes applications of management science methodology/philosophy to higher education administration is presented. Readily available materials and journal articles published mainly since 1972 are briefly described and coded using a taxonomy with five major dimensions: administrative level at which the methodology is applied; purpose of the model; program within a college; the technique used; and resources involved. An indication of whether the model was implemented is provided for each citation. Administrative level covers: federal and state governments, multicampus system, and campus. Purposes of the model are classified as: planning, budgeting, scheduling, resource allocation, obtaining resources, report generation, and evaluation. Program classifications include: general academic instruction; vocational/technical instruction; admissions, registration, records; departmental administration; executive management; and financial management. Technique categories include: mathematical programming, networks, simulation, multicriteria and classical optimization, stochastic processes, forecasting, decision support systems, and social science statistics. Resource categories include students, faculty, and financial. An index based on the taxonomy is included. (SW)
