WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU
5 Signs You Could Benefit from Operations Research
If one or more of the following signs applies to your situation, an O.R. professional may offer the insight you and your organization need.
- You face complex
decisions. Are you faced with more decision factors
than you can get your arms around? Do your key operational
computer systems lack intelligence? O.R. professionals can
analyze complex situations and build intelligence into key
systems, revealing the best options. But before you act, talk
with an O.R. professional to confirm that taking an O.R. approach
will pay dividends.
having problems with processes. One or more of your
processes is broken or needs to work a lot better. Many small,
day-to-day decisions are not being made well, and it's
having an impact on your bottom line. O.R. can help improve
these processes and their outcomes dramatically.
- You're troubled
by risk. Do you want to limit or reduce risk? Assessing
the risk of a new project or contract can be tricky. O.R.
can help you quantify risk, which is key to controlling it.
O.R. can assist you in planning how best to balance risk against
the gains you expect.
- Your organization
is not making the most of its data. Do you track information
about your organization and have data that is begging to be
used for decision making? O.R. specializes in working with
data – extracting the most valuable information from what's
currently collected, and showing what additional data you
could collect to increase the value even further.
- You need to
beat stiff competition. Others in your field are probably
already using O.R. to gain competitive advantage. Can you
afford not to? An O.R. professional can help you stay
on top with the latest methods – and open up important
new sources of advantage.
