Focuses on the quantitative model building approach to problem-solving with extensive use of computer software. 

Motivation: A cost saving option for students. Outside of textbook, related to OM practical applications.

Student Feedback: Reasonably good articles acting as case studies; good relevancy to practical applications of OM topics
