Shows how management science concepts can help society run more efficiently. Shows how mathematical techniques can be used to find the best schedules, routes, and use of available resources.
Management science.   Production scheduling.  Linear programming.

Optimal solution: the best possible solution to a problem
Airline scheduling
        limited expensive resources
        "Too many cooks"  - more resources can lead to poorer performance
Pure vs. applied research in management science

Management science has substituted mathematics for guesswork and hope; it has also has given us practical ways to pursue the age-old goal of  finding the best solutions to very familiar problems.
