Benefits of O.R.

No matter what size or at what stage your organisation is, no matter what kind of decision, problem, or opportunity you face, there's probably a way for Pro Bono Operational Research (O.R.) to help.

O.R. consistently delivers significant value – strategic to tactical, top-line to bottom-line – to the organisations and executives who use it.  
Benefits from O.R. include:

  • Business insight: Providing quantitative and business insight into complex problems.
  • Business performance: Improving business performance by embedding model-driven intelligence into an organisation’s information systems to improve decision making.
  • Cost reduction: Finding new opportunities to decrease cost or investment.
  • Decision making: Assessing the likely outcomes of decision alternatives and uncovering better alternatives.
  • Forecasting: Providing a better basis for more accurate forecasting and planning.
  • Improved scheduling: Efficiently scheduling staff, equipment, events, and more.
  • Planning: Applying quantitative techniques to support operations, tactical planning, and strategic planning.
  • Pricing: Dynamically pricing products and services.
  • Productivity: Helping organisations find ways to make processes and people more productive.
  • Profits: Increasing revenue or return on investment; increasing market share.
  • Quality: Improving quality as well as quantifying and balancing qualitative considerations.
  • Recovery: Gaining greater control and achieving turn-around.
  • Resources: Gaining greater utilisation from limited equipment, facilities, money, and personnel.
  • Risk: Measuring risk quantitatively and uncovering factors critical to managing and reducing risk.
  • Throughput: Increasing speed or throughput and decreasing delays.
