The purpose of the Operations Research Center is to provide a small, full-time analytical capability to both the Academy and the United States Army. The Operations Research Center helps to fill several Academy needs 1 enriched education for cadets 2 enhanced professional development opportunities for Army faculty 3 strong ties between the Academy and Army agencies and 4 the integration of new technologies into the academic program. By being fully engaged in current Army issues, the Operations Research Center assures that systems engineering education at West Point remains current and relevant. The one-year experience tour with the ORCEN offers officers assigned to the Academy as faculty the opportunity to engage in meaningful applied research and problem solving activities that both further enhances their soldierly professional development and keeps them current in their discipline. The Armys return on its investment is meaningful career development experiences for officers, especially those in Functional Areas 495153, and important investigation of vital Army problems at far less cost than would be required through civilian contracts.
