Welcome to the Operations Group

The Operations Group at WBS considers how organisations configure, control and coordinate resources and processes to deliver value through products and services to the network of stakeholders.

We focus on the design, planning, control and improvement of operations in both manufacturing and service, private and public sectors. We are an empirically focused group, using case research, experiments and surveys to examine pertinent phenomena. We are known for our high-quality teaching and research and have developed effective partnerships with many local and international organisations.

Members of the group focus on the theoretical foundations and methodological advances of Operational Research (OR) techniques to support management decisions. We promote the practical application of OR in industry and government, with special emphasis on health, manufacturing and transport. Research in the group spans the whole field of OR, from Mathematical Programming and Heuristics to Simulation and Strategy. A particular focus is on decision making under uncertainty.

We are always interested to hear from potential candidates, who need to be aware that the threshold for consideration at Assistant Professor level is 1 x AJG4 rated publication at a minimum.
