What is Operations Research?

Operations Research (OR) is a discipline that deals with the application of advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. Utilising techniques from mathematics, statistics, and computer science, it aims to solve complex problems within various sectors, including business, engineering, healthcare, and government. By formulating models to predict future outcomes and optimize processes, Operations Research provides invaluable insights that lead to efficient and effective solutions to some of the most challenging questions faced by organisations today.
