What is the group about?

The EWG-POR aims to bring together all practitioners of OR and analytics who work with clients and problem-owners to help them make better decisions, design better systems, and achieve better insights. Together, we can:

  • highlight and share the practical considerations that make doing OR in the real world so interesting and so challenging – the people who must be involved, the unique details of the specific problem situation, the multiple and sometimes hidden objectives
  • exchange ideas, knowledge and expertise about ways of developing and improving practice
  • develop networks that can be used for collaborations or for support
  • make visible the importance of the practice of OR, in EURO.

If you have any suggestions or questions, an event you want to publicise, an issue you want to share, a blog or a case study you want to post, a question you want to put to the community:  please contact one of the coordinators.
