As defined by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), operations research is the professional discipline that deals with the application of scientific methods to decision-making, especially to the allocation of human and material resources. Operations researchers aim to provide defendable basis for decision-making; they seek to understand and structure complex situations and to use this understanding to predict system behavior and improve system performance.
