The TutORials in Operations Research series is published annually by INFORMS as an introduction to emerging and classical subfields of operations research and management science. These chapters are designed to be accessible for all constituents of the INFORMS community, including current students, practitioners, faculty, and researchers. The publication allows readers to keep pace with new developments in the field, and serves as augmenting material for a selection of the tutorial presentations offered at the INFORMS national meetings.
The nine chapters in this year’s volume discuss research in stochastic optimization, cloud computing, system-wide critical infrastructure analysis, data analysis and correction by epi-splines, numerical instability in linear and integer programs, healthcare operations, and service systems. In addition, this volume contains a perspective on the emergence of operations research and operations management, along with an examination of simulation-based education in supply chain management. This collection of chapters focuses on decision-making as a system of data analysis, optimization theory, computing technology, and policy, and highlights the theme of the 2014 INFORMS Annual Meeting, Bridging Data and Decisions.
