The Operational Research is a quantitative technique used to formulate management decisions wherever the necessity to optimize the utilization of resources vis-a -vis the return is crucial. Operational Research has wide applications in almost all fields of human endeavours i.e., industry, public utilities, social service, banking, health, agriculture and the likes.
