About this book

Offering a concise and multidisciplinary reference guide to the state of the art in Australian operations research, this book will be of great value to academics working in many disciplines associated with operations research, as well as industrial practitioners engaged in planning, scheduling and logistics.

Over 60 papers, with topics ranging from academic research techniques and case studies to industrial and administrative best practices in operations research, address aspects such as:

• optimization, combinatorial optimization, decision analysis, supply-chain management, queuing and routing, and project management; and

• logistics, government, cyber security, health-care systems, mining and material processing, ergonomics and human factors, space applications, telecommunications and transportation, among many others.

This book presents the Proceedings of the National Conference of the Australian Society for Operations Research, the premier professional organization for Australian academics and practitioners working in optimization and other disciplines related to operations research. The conference was held in Canberra in November 2016.
