The primary purpose of this paper is to provide the practicioner with a short, but informative handbook of tools to use in modeling decision making situations as network flow problems. These tools are presented as part of the discussion of recent industrial and governmental applications. The intent is not to enumerate all applications of networks, but rather to give the reader a flavor of the versatility and usability of networks. An additional objective is to acquaint the reader with the process of visualizing a problem by means of network diagrams, thereby making it possible to capture important interrelationships in an easily understood pictorial framework.
