the main objective of Operations Research?

the goal of operations research is to arrive at optimal or near-optimal solutions to complex problems involving some form of decision making. The field originated in the military before World War 2, but has since expanded to explore a wide range of problems in all sorts of different industries.

OR frequently deals with some form of maximizing profit/performance or minimizing the loss/risk associated with some real world objective, but depending on the area of application and nature of the problem the specific goal(s) could involve a whole spectrum of criteria.
