Khanna © PHI Learning Page 3 Learning Objectives Decision Making Model Operations Research - Definitions Characteristics of Operations Research Models and Operations Research Operations Research Methodology Operations Research Techniques Typical Applications of Operations Research

4 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 4 Decision Making Model Quantify and Measure against Objectives Define the problemEstablish Cause-Effect relationship Objective Setting Decide on Strengths and Weaknesses Decide on Boundary Conditions Information Gathering Gather Data Analyse Data Generation of Alternatives Impose Limits Evaluation of Alternatives Look at Short Range Look at long Range Decide on Feasible Alternatives Selection of Alternative Apply Quantitative AidsApply Qualitative Aids Implementation Translate into Action Decide Alternative Monitor and Control Qualitative Approach Quantitative Approach

5 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 5 The Decision Dilemma Apna Gaon, an ethnic resort, wanted a special dish that will be served to all patrons free on Divali. They held a competition for amateur cooking teams to decide on the dish. Four teams participated in the competition. The competition was not open to professionals. Seven judges were appointed for the competition. Each judge rank ordered the teams according to their performance. The team standing first was awarded 4 points, the second 3, the third 2 and the team standing fourth was awarded 1 point. The points of all judges were totalled up and a score sheet prepared.

Khanna © PHI Learning Page 6 JUDGESJ1J2J3J4J5J6J7TOTAL A RANK SCORE B RANK SCORE C RANK SCORE D RANK SCORE Before result was announced, Team C protested that Team B should be disqualified as it had used a professional. This was true. What would you do as the Chairman of Apna Gaon?

7 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 7 JUDGESJ1J2J3J4J5J6J7TOTAL A RANK SCORE B RANK SCORE C RANK SCORE D RANK SCORE Disqualify Team B. If scoring is revised as per fresh ranking without altering each judge’s preference; the results alter materially. Method of scoring debatable.

9 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 9 Operations Research - Definitions OR is a scientific method of providing executive departments with a quantitative basis for decisions under their control. Morse & Kimball

10 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 10 OR is a scientific approach to problem solving for executive management Wagner Operations Research - Definitions

11 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 11 OR is the art of giving bad answers to problems, which otherwise have worse answers. T.L. Saaty Operations Research - Definitions

12 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 12 OR is an applied decision theory. It uses scientific, mathematical or logical means to attempt to cope with the problems that confront the executive, when he tries to achieve a thorough-going rationality in dealing with his decision problems. D. W. Miller & M. K. Starr Operations Research - Definitions

13 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 13 Employment of scientific methods of analysis to provide executives with quantitative basis for making decisions regarding operations under their control. Operations Research - Definitions

15 Quantitative Techniques for Decision Making M.P. Gupta & R.B. Khanna © PHI Learning Page 15 Modelling in Operations Research Physical or Iconic Model – ‘Look alike’ of what it represents. Analogue Models – Substitution of one property for another Mathematical or Analytical Models – Symbolic abstract models. TC = FC + (VC)Q where TC is Total Cost FC is Fixed Cost VC is Variable Cost Q is number of units produced
