Operations Research in practice: simple ideas that work


In this talk, some projects developed with industrial and service companies will be presented. In these projects, methodologies and techniques of Operations Research were used with great success. The approaches followed had a strong emphasis on structuring the problem and defining and collecting the necessary information. Using then simple techniques of Operational Research, it was possible to achieve in these projects significant results for these companies. The cases we will present will range from the reallocation of municipal services from the city of Porto to other municipal buildings, to the development of a decision support system for the management of vehicles in a rent-a-car company and the definition of prices for the storage of cereals, for human food and animal feed, in the Port of Leixões.
