Operations Research is about applying quantitative tools and models to make better decisions and to get a better understanding of the world that we operate in. We are living in an increasingly complex world with globalization and technology as the main drivers of complexity. No other science then Operations Research allows organizations to embrace this complexity and use it to their advantage.
Whether you are a company with production locations across the globe, a law enforcement agency combatting terrorism, a freight company that delivers goods and parcels or an advertising agency; you can benefit from OR techniques and tools: pattern detection, supply chain optimization, big data, demand sensing, forecasting, portfolio optimization, risk management, online advertising, it wouldn’t be here nor possible without Operations Research.
In this magazine we want to give you an insight in the beauty of complexity and the ways you can put this complexity to work for you.
