Operations Research is a modern scientific study using Mathematics, Statistics, Management Science, Engineering Technology, Economics, Health Science, Business Administration, Defense, Government Agencies, etc. Above all, it is the optimization of scarce resources such as people, goods and money. This topic is now included in curricula in various disciplines, including B.Tech/M.Tech, M.B.A., M.C.A, M.Sc., C.A. as well as some aspects of the NET / SET / GATE exams.
