The purpose of this day is to develop an understanding of OR and the OR process. It is this methodology of OR that provides the framework within which OR techniques and models are used to address real world problems.

The objectives for the day are to:

  • know what OR is and to understand the role of models in OR;
  • learn about the OR process and how it helps define and structure OR projects;
  • understand the role of data in OR work and the issues in obtaining suitable data; and
  • know how to verify and validate OR models.

The topics covered will include:

  • introduction to OR;
  • models and modelling;
  • the process of developing and using models in OR;
  • data collection in model building; and
  • verification and validation of models.
