Military Operations Research Society signs an MOU with the International Council of Systems Engineering

SAN DIEGO (May 30, 2019) – The International Council of Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the largest organization in the world dedicated to systems engineering, is excited to announce it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Military Operations Research Society (MORS). MORS is a non-profit membership organization focused on national security operations research. The mission of MORS is to enhance the quality of analysis that informs national security and homeland defense decisions.

This MOU is intended to promote a collaborative relationship in related professional areas that are of mutual interest and benefit to the INCOSE and MORS. INCOSE and MORS initially wish to develop and promote best practice processes and guidance, training, and supporting materials that can be used in projects and organizations, in the fields of operation research and systems engineering. This agreement is intended to formalize the working relationship and arrangements in operations research, systems engineering, and others mutual areas of interest.

Sheilah Simberg, MORS President stated, "We're excited about this opportunity to promote best practice processes and guidance, training, and supporting materials that can be used by MORS and INCOSE members in their Operation Research and Systems Engineering projects." said MORS President, Sheilah Simberg. "This relationship will better support processes that provide our Operation Research and Systems Engineering customers with comprehensively designed, optimally performing, and affordable systems.”

Garry J. Roedler, INCOSE President stated, “As the missions, needs, and operational environments of our systems rapidly change, it becomes even more important to understand the stakeholder needs across the life cycle. By working together, we plan to effectively leverage the practices of Operations Research and Systems Engineering to provide a more comprehensive approach to understand mission and stakeholder needs to enhance system definition and sustainment.”

About the Military Operations Research Society

MORS has a long and distinguished history, dating back over fifty years. The First Military Operations Research Symposium (MORS), sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) - Pasadena, was held at Corona Naval Ordnance Lab, Corona, California in August of 1957. By the Eighth MORS Symposium the event became a nationally-oriented joint-service meeting. In April 1966 the Military Operations Research Society was incorporated.

MORS is proud of its heritage as it closely reflects the heritage of Operations Research in the United States. MORS recognizes those individuals who have made long-lasting and significant contributions to the Society as Fellows of the Society. They are some of the great minds in military and national security OR work.
