“Decision Sciences” is a collaborative approach involving mathematical formulae, business tactics, technological applications and behavioral sciences to help senior management make data driven decisions. Such approaches along with technology help business leaders execute various processes and day-to-day operations in a smoother and better manner. They will help them to make smarter and more efficient decisions that will improve their firms’ performance and ultimately, enhancing individual, group, organizational and societal decision making in support of a better future. Managers in all disciplines especially the most vital and related to the movements and transportation of people, materials and products from one place to another face an endless list of complex issues every day, they must make decisions about each activity they make. One of the essential managerial skills is the ability to allocate and utilize limited resources appropriately in the efforts of achieving the optimal performance efficiently.


This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical and practical frameworks and the latest research findings in the area of decision sciences and applications in the transportation sector. It will be written for researchers, executives and practitioners who want to enrich their scientific knowledge and improve their understanding of the decision-making process in facing real-world problems in the transportation sector. The used modern and up-to-date decision science techniques will make it easier for business leaders and managers in the transportation sector to make smarter and more efficient decisions that will improve the firms’ functioning and performance.
