Operations Research Models Optimization Resources
 The ORMM text and this site describe several optimization methods of operations research by model type. We list below available resources for teaching topics related to optimization modeling. Where available, PowerPoint presentations are provided. Links are to other pages on this site.

A list of applications with links are shown below. We have not listed topics where optimization is provided by closed form expressions, such as in inventory theory, or where optimization is an inherent part of the model such as in decision analysis.
