Process and Queue Optimization
One of the most traditional applications of operations research is related to process optimization, queue management and logistics. Once you have a set of activities that are done in a methodological manner and in which products, people and resources converge; you have an ideal framework to apply operations research for planning and optimization. This includes system design, queueing management and optimization, logistics network design, vehicle routing, among many others. Solutions might be related to strategic planning, CAPEX decisions, operational tools and software, and much more.
