Ulrich Derigs, Director, Department of Information Systems and Operations Research (WINFORS), University of. PDF | The mathematical aspects of Operations Research and Systems Analysis concerned with optimization of objectives form the subject of.

Since that time, operational research has expanded into a field widely used in industries ranging from petrochemicals to airlines, finance, logistics, and government, moving to a focus on the development of mathematical models that can be used to analyse and optimize complex systems, and has become an area of active academic and industrial research. Others in the 18th and 19th centuries solved these types of problems with combinatorics.

Charles Babbage 's research into the cost of transportation and sorting of mail led to England's universal "Penny Post" in , and studies into the dynamical behaviour of railway vehicles in defence of the GWR 's broad gauge. Harris in Operational research may have originated in the efforts of military planners during World War I convoy theory and Lanchester's laws.

Percy Bridgman brought operational research to bear on problems in physics in the s and would later attempt to extend these to the social sciences. Rowe conceived the idea as a means to analyse and improve the working of the UK's early warning radar system, Chain Home CH. Initially, he analysed the operating of the radar equipment and its communication networks, expanding later to include the operating personnel's behaviour. This revealed unappreciated limitations of the CH network and allowed remedial action to be taken.

About operational research scientists worked for the British Army. Early in the war while working for the Royal Aircraft Establishment RAE he set up a team known as the "Circus" which helped to reduce the number of anti-aircraft artillery rounds needed to shoot down an enemy aircraft from an average of over 20, at the start of the Battle of Britain to 4, in Britain introduced the convoy system to reduce shipping losses, but while the principle of using warships to accompany merchant ships was generally accepted, it was unclear whether it was better for convoys to be small or large.

Convoys travel at the speed of the slowest member, so small convoys can travel faster. It was also argued that small convoys would be harder for German U-boats to detect.

On the other hand, large convoys could deploy more warships against an attacker. Blackett's staff showed that the losses suffered by convoys depended largely on the number of escort vessels present, rather than the size of the convoy.

Their conclusion was that a few large convoys are more defensible than many small ones. As most of them were from Bomber Command they were painted black for night-time operations.

At the suggestion of CC-ORS a test was run to see if that was the best colour to camouflage the aircraft for daytime operations in the grey North Atlantic skies. Other work by the CC-ORS indicated that on average if the trigger depth of aerial-delivered depth charges DCs were changed from feet to 25 feet, the kill ratios would go up. The PCP Theorem 5.
