Optimization and Decision Science

Description

Nowadays, real-world problems are widely modeled and optimized by many researchers. For better guiding, the systems managers need to make good decisions by means of proper optimization methods. Thus new theory and application developments in these fields have been mooted as well. Many various applications are performed in these fields by researches and practitioners. As researchers do researches in optimization and decision science, it is felt that these issues can be connected to other fields for better optimizing and applying in decision making.

Presenting new and innovative contributions and reports on developments in decision science incorporating the recent research results in theory, case study and applications, from a wide selection of educators, practitioners, and research personnel, are the aim of this special issue. Here, covering a lot of important areas in decision science for cooperating among business, industry, and government is an aim too.

Moreover, we seek for original contributions and review articles describing the state of the art in optimization and decision science fields and support them with information systems, theories, principles, models, processes, and applications within. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Decision analysis and decision support
  • Data envelopment analysis
  • Performance evaluation
  • Efficiency, effectiveness, and productivity
  • Benchmarking
  • Revenue and cost management
  • Optimization in finance and banking
  • Fuzzy system and soft-computing
  • OR in production management
  • Quantitative and qualitative decision model
  • Stochastic in optimization
  • Strategic management and BSC
  • Performance measurement
  • Application of optimization
  • Multiple criteria decision making and optimization
