In the Introduction section, O.R. is mentioned. Does this refer to Wikipedia:Operations research?

More or less, Operations Research is the term used in the USA while Operational Research is the term used in the UK. Some however, would argue that Operational Research has a wider scope. Soft Systems is part of Soft OR, and Soft OR is not well known in the USA. Thanks for your interest.--Logicalgregory (talk) 07:25, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
