Operations research in context
The terms operations research and management science are often used synonymously. When a distinction is drawn, management science generally implies a closer relationship to the problems of business management Operations research also closely relates to industrial engineering . Industrial engineering takes more of an engineering point of view, and industrial engineers typically consider OR techniques to be a major part of their toolset. Some of the primary tools used by operations researchers are statistics optimization , stochastics, queueing theory game theory graph theory and simulation . Because of the computational nature of these fields OR also has ties to computer science , and operations researchers regularly use custom-written or off-the-shelf software Operations research is distinguished by its ability to look at and improve an entire system , rather than concentrating only on specific elements (though this is often done as well). An operations researcher faced with a new problem is expected to determine which techniques are most appropriate given the nature of the system, the goals for improvement, and constraints on time and computing power. For this and other reasons, the human element of OR is vital. Like any tools, OR techniques cannot solve problems by themselves.

We take great pride in our high quality teaching and research. The Statistical Cybermetrics Research Group is our world-leading research team, applying a variety of mathematical and statistical techniques to analyse Web data. Individual lecturers also research and offer consultancy in other areas of Statistics and Operational Research. We supervise PhD students in all these areas. The Maths, Statistics and Operational Research Division offers two specialist degrees: Mathematical Sciences and Mathematical Business Analysis . In addition you can study Maths/Stats/OR in through the modular degree scheme by choosing Mathematical Sciences or Statistical Sciences in conjunction with other subjects such as Accountancy, or even Dance! Call (01902) 321402 or e-mail: for information. Many of our classes are taught in relatively small groups of 20 or less, enabling us to give more individual attention to students and to be responsive to student needs. Graduates have a wide range of jobs to select from: some decide to become teachers or to work in banks and building societies, but others have chosen data analysis, marketing and management.

MSc in Operational Research
The Masters in Operational Research (MSc in OR) is designed for the intending operational research professional and is suitable for those completing a first degree in a numerate subject. Under the EPSRC Masters Training Package scheme we offer studentships to well-qualified applicants. The MSc in OR is a flexible degree scheme in which you choose subjects that interest you and also attend compulsory core modules. The taught element of the programme ends in May and is then followed by a summer project that runs until mid-September. The course starts in late September and is taught intensively for 12 months. It is in modular form and you have a considerable amount of choice in selecting those techniques and applications courses most appropriate to your own background and interests. Studies on Methodology are compulsory and you will also be required to undertake a significant real life project. Thus you will develop some professionalism by working for 16 weeks as a consultant to management, whilst being supervised by a member of staff.

There has been a professional O.R. society in Canada since 1958. This body, called the Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) works to advance the theory and practice of O.R. It's primary purpose is to stimulate and promote contacts between people interested in the subject. It does this through various means such as:
In 1957, the Operations Research Society of Toronto was the only OR society in Canada. Yet there was by this time a substantial amount of OR work being done in Montreal. There also had been for many years a large and active group of Military OR professionals associated with the Defense Research Board in Ottawa. In order to participate in the affairs of a professional society those outside Toronto had to be members of either the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA) or The Institute of Management Sciences (TIMS). In September 1957 the international OR body, the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS) was created with Sir Charles Goodeve as Secretary. Sir Charles, a Canadian prominent in war time OR in Britain and now Director of the British Iron and Steel Research Association, was concerned that Canada had no national society that could join IFORS, and he asked Dr. Omond Solandt to try and form one. Shortly after this, Dr. Hopkins of the Ottawa group sent out a letter suggesting that a Canadian Section of ORSA be formed. This was opposed by the Toronto group and also by the Montreal group.

Aims This degree covers both the theory and application of modern statistical and mathematical modelling techniques required to solve applied problems in industry, the public services, commerce and scientific research. While practically orientated, the degree proceeds from a strong theoretical background so as to develop the ability to tackle new and non-standard problems with confidence. The mutual dependence of practice and theory is emphasised wherever possible. This degree is ideally suited to you if you are considering a career move into statistics and operational research, or if your work already involves aspects of data analysis, the interpretation of statistics, the optimal design and control of systems, or the modelling and prediction of time-dependent phenomena. Duration
  • Two years part-time.

There are two clusters reflecting interests in the decision sciences and information systems respectively. The decision cluster works on new methods of technological forecasting, models of diffusion processes and growth curve modelling; algorithms and vehicle routing; combinatorial optimisation and genetic algorithms, with applications in routing and scheduling. Hadjiconstantinou has won research grants from the EPSRC and the DTI Water Research Centre for such work. Beasley founded and maintains the OR Library, a web based collection of test data sets for OR problems used by OR researchers worldwide.

Operations research (OR) is a scientific approach to analyzing problems and making decisions. OR professionals aim to provide rational bases for decision making by seeking to understand and structure complex situations and to use this understanding to predict system behavior and improve system performance. Much of this work is done using analytical and numerical techniques to develop and manipulate mathematical and computer models of organizational systems composed of people, machines, and procedures. In the 1950s operations research evolved into a profession with the formation of national societies, establishment of journals and academic departments in universities. The use of operations research expanded beyond the military to include both private companies and other governmental organizations. The petrochemical industry was one of the first to broadly embrace operations research to improve the performance of plants, develop natural resources and plan strategy. Today, operations research plays important roles in a variety of industries such as:
  • airline - scheduling planes and crews, pricing tickets, taking reservations, and planning the size of the fleet
