BASIC Business Analysis and Operations Research discusses how the Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code (BASIC) can be utilized in business analysis. The book is comprised of seven chapters that tackle various topics about BASIC and business analysis. Chapters 1 and 2 provide an overview of BASIC and Operations Research. Chapter 3 covers index numbers and provides an introduction to programming in structured BASIC. The book also presents programs for Data Fitting, and then describes how a simple program can be developed to include progressive complexity. The programs for a range of computational tasks are also presented. The book also tackles Markov chains in the context of policies for preventative maintenance. The text will be of great use to undergraduate students of management, computer, technology, and science.
