A portion of the research done at the Operations Research Center has consisted of developing new mathematical methods for the control of inventories. The objective of this work has been two-fold namely, 1 in the theoretical mathematics constructed to accept whatever degree of mathematical sophistication appeared to emerge naturally as being required, 2 to develop the resulting methods to the point of practical usefulness sufficient to ensure their use by non-mathematically oriented personnel conducting the actual supply operation. As a result, an important fraction of the effort of the research staff has been devoted to working personally with the operating supply people.
