Abstract: For a large number of applications Operations Research has a proven track record: it can deliver high quality solutions for planning problems. Important examples can be found in the airline industry, logistics and production management. This report will describe real-world examples of a novel way of applying Operations Research: As plans have to be adjusted to take last minute changes into consideration, OR can play an active role in such a situation by producing, maybe even in a pro-actively role, alternative plans. This type of activity is called Disruption Management.
