About this book

Introduction

This book provides an introduction to operational research methods and their application in the agrifood and environmental sectors. It explains the need for multicriteria decision analysis and teaches users how to use recent advances in multicriteria and clustering classification techniques in practice. Further, it presents some of the most common methodologies for statistical analysis and mathematical modeling, and discusses in detail ten examples that explain and show “hands-on” how operational research can be used in key decision-making processes at enterprises in the agricultural food and environmental industries. As such, the book offers a valuable resource especially well suited as a textbook for postgraduate courses.
