The 33rd International Symposium on Military Operational Research (ISMOR) was held from 26th to 29th July at Royal Holloway, University of London. Will Jones from Catalyze presented the paper ‘Military Judgement with a dash of logic: Royal Navy Case studies’.
Will’s paper was on the baseporting decisions for Royal Navy Minehunting ships, selecting the most cost-effective solution from several options. The process included hard criteria such as costs, together with softer criteria including short and long term personnel factors and political considerations.
