I just wanted to write a quick post before the holidays. In the next few weeks, I hope to write a few OR and non-OR posts.
This year, I am grateful for all of the excellent use of OR (naturally) and for my regular readers.
Do you use OR during Thanksgiving? With all the travel, and oven scheduling, I imagine that many of us start to use advanced analytical techniques to manage the details during the long holiday weekend. I know I will. Since I have written about this before, I will refer you to the related posts.
- Oven scheduling
- OR of food banks
- My most widely read publication – my recipe for pumpkin chocolate-chip muffins. I made a massive batch last week.
Don’t forget to post about your OR-related Thanksgiving plans. I am particularly interested in hearing about how you would justify participating in or avoiding the Black Friday sales (using OR, of course). I have never shopped the Black Friday sales, but might give it a shot if you can convince me.
