Features

  • Presents the principles behind PROC OPTMODEL and other SAS procedures
  • Covers the algorithms and, including assembly line balancing, traveling salesman, critical path analysis, and logistics distribution
  • Illustrates the transformation of the minimax-type formu methods for linear programming, integer linear programming, and goal programming models
  • Provides practical examples of OR problemslation into a minimization-type formulation
  • Demonstrates the use of SAS in multiple criteria decision making and performance measurement, including analytical hierarchy process and data envelopment analysis

Summary

Using a wide range of operational research (OR) optimization examples, Applied Operational Research with SAS demonstrates how the OR procedures in SAS work. The book is one of the first to extensively cover the application of SAS procedures to OR problems, such as single criterion optimization, project management decisions, printed circuit board assembly, and multiple criteria decision making.

The text begins with the algorithms and methods for linear programming, integer linear programming, and goal programming models. It then describes the principles of several OR procedures in SAS. Subsequent chapters explain how to use these procedures to solve various types of OR problems. Each of these chapters describes the concept of an OR problem, presents an example of the problem, and discusses the specific procedure and its macros for the optimal solution of the problem. The macros include data handling, model building, and report writing.

While primarily designed for SAS users in OR and marketing analytics, the book can also be used by readers interested in mathematical modeling techniques. By formulating the OR problems as mathematical models, the authors show how SAS can solve a variety of optimization problems.

Editorial Reviews

"This book successfully bridges the gap between theory and practice. Written primarily for SAS, the authors present a wide range of optimisation problems to demonstrate how the SAS/OR® procedures work. The text is well written, easy to follow, and will appeal both to those who have an interest only in concepts and to those merely interested in solving practical problems."
—Carl M. O’Brien, International Statistical Review (2013), 81
