Foundations of Operational Research and Business Analysis: Business Modeling – Supply Chain Analysis The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature available that pertains to any issues with problem structuring, data collection and analysis in OR/MS interventions. A high-tech electronics case study that has been chosen to illustrate the valid points in this discussion will be briefly outlined first before a comprehensive literature review is outlined. The following discussion will explain the relevance of the literature review to the case study outlined before a concluding paragraph summarizes the issues with problem structuring, data collection and analysis for the case study example.
