Abstract
As an operations researcher (OR), sooner or later you will be expected to write a technical publication. The following exposes and clarifies what will be expected of you as an OR, and what you should expect from yourself. All of this applies to anything you write, from an executive summary to a full technical publication you author, or edit. Hereafter, I call this product your “publication.” You may love the mathematics, but if you cannot explain your results to a non-analyst in plain English, you have failed. As an OR, you will be expected to be better at this kind of publication than anybody else --- and, you will be.
