Stochastic Operations Management






This second SAM on Stochastic Operations Managment is concerned with decision making under uncertainty. In real life, examples abound of situations in which decisions must be made, costs must be minimized, etc., while only partial information is available. One may think of revenue management, inventory control, staffing of call centers, the organi- zation of warehouses, traffic management, and many other topics. Stochastic operations research uses, develops and provides tools from probability theory and operations research to make good decisions.
