Our Mission

Welcome to the Chair of Management Information Systems and Operations Research (MISOR)!

The focus of our research and teaching is on mathematical optimisation models, quantitative methods and decision support systems in companies and organisations. We use high-performance computers to solve particularly difficult and computationally intensive decision-making problems.

„Being able to solve a problem as quickly as possible to optimality is a useless skill if the wrong problem has been solved.”

Prof. Dr. Guido Schryen,
