Abstract : A long-range (0 to 20 years) forecast is attempted in the development of the methodology and techniques of operations research. The forecast deals with expected advances in techniques of decision procedures, particularly in the realm of value and policy analysis. Progress in methodology is more greatly needed than progress in computer engineering. The need for, and estimated progress in, the development of macromodel theory is described.
