Welcome to the EURO working group on Practice of OR. Here we present events, news and other information valuable for practitioners of OR as well as academics with an interest in the field.
(Click on the picture to find the documentation for our first work group meeting held in Paris in February 2018.)
If OR is about using modelling, maths and science to help organisations become more effective, then the essence of OR is in its applications.
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.
