Editorial

This first issue of ORiON Volume 22 contains seven operational research papers, six of which deal with interesting applications (ranging from safely routing ships through a minefield and formulating optimal fishing and fruit exporting policies to election result forecasting, project auditing and vehicle routing) and one in which a new heuristic is proposed for the job shop scheduling problem with n jobs processed on one machine. These papers utilise a wide variety of operational research techniques from subdisciplines as diverse as mathematical programming, graph and network theory, genetic algorithms, multicriteria decision analysis, discriminant analysis and fuzzy clustering.
