Abstract

It will not be an exaggeration to say that management as a discipline draws maximum applications from computing. Management always strives for precision in decision making and modern day computing techniques are of great help to this end. It is almost an established fact that decisions converted into quantifiable form get easily understood and implemented. Though most of the body of management thoughts and practices are a saga of abstract manifestation of human activities ranging from leading to following, still conversion of these abstract features into numbers has been the major development in management sciences. Computing is a broad version of computation and modern day business management heavily relies on numerical computation of various activities. Let us consider an example to put forth the point more vividly. If a general manger goes to production department and guides the personnel there to increase the production levels as in foregone month, company could not match the market demand. This plea of him will not make a serious point on production department personnel, if it is not backed by quantitative figures. The other version of the same story can be that the manager goes to the production department with the data of production and marketing demand of the last few months and clearly indicates towards the gap in production levels and market demand in quantitative terms. This paper attempts to explore some philosophical linkages between modern day computing and their applications in management techniques. Author will present some of his observations in this regards. The basic notion which will back the author is his believe that numbers are the most honest and simple creations of god. These are only the clever tactics of human beings which deploy them cruelly in almost all of his misdeeds. It will still take human mind to develop to an extent so as to quantify abstract things into numbers till then it is not illogical to rely on computing and scaling techniques.
