Abstract:

The basic paper on which the following remarks are a commentary is a brief account of the evolution of operations research within the USAF and a critique on that evolution. The present author holds that the function became too narrowly concentrated about the mathematical sciences and ignored the potential contributions of such disciplines as economics, sociology, and history.
