Summary

Production and distribution problems have historically been a major category of research in Operations Research. Yet, applications of OR/MS methods in production and distribution practice remain limited and OR/MS groups are not thriving in industry. The reason may be in the way problems are approached in practice, which then has consequences for modelling and solution methods. Perhaps a slightly different perspective for OR/MS could lead to significantly greater successes in applications to production and distribution problems.
