We surveyed applications of mathematical modeling techniques to solving various problems appearing in public sectors. Our work came out as "Public Sector OR Handbook" (Translation from Handbooks in Operations Research and Management Science) in April, 1998. This book contains various types of applications of OR techniques to general public sectors including emergency facility location problems, risk forecasting and management, hazardous facility location problems, quality management of environments, problems and guideline for general ,modeling analyses, and so on. Formulation techniques for modeling are also described in the survey, which will help us building our own models to solve various problems appearing in public sectors.
We published several papers related to mathematical modeling techniques such as 1. Oyama, T. "Mathematical modeling analyses and basic formulation techniques", Communications of OR Society of Japan, 4, 1998
2. Oyama, T. "Shortest path problems and related matters", Communications of OR Society of Japan, 12, 1997.
The first paper surveys various mathematical modeling techniques used in systems analyses mainly focused on network modeling formulation. It also includes future prospects for the application of mathematical modeling techniques. The second paper deals with shortest path problems including theory and its application to traffic problems in the metropolitan areas.
Prof. Ronald Huff surveyed US governmental organization FEMA with its future targets and problems. Prof. Nicholas Hall proposed a new modeling technique for solving resource location-allocation problems. Prof. Leslie Trotter developed a new solution technique for network systems optimization problems.
