Operations Research is a vital part of management.  Operations Research uses analytical techniques to solve problems and make decisions.  Problems are deconstructed to more simpler components.  These components are then solved through mathematical analysis.

Decision making is made more reliable and effective with the use of operations research.  The use of operations research enables organizations to develop more comprehensive datasets and predict outcomes more accurately and predict risk.
