High-voltage networks are technological infrastructures of vital importance for energy transmission. Safety, continuity, and quality of service are ensured by a wide range of recurring and extraordinary maintenance activities. These activities are performed by numerous and heterogeneous teams covering very large areas, where the traditional decision-making approach based on the sole human expertise is not always enough.

What is Operations Research?

Operations research is a sub-field of applied mathematical sciences aiming at analyzing and solving complex problems through mathematical models and advanced quantitative methods to develop specific approaches to support both decision-making and strategic processes.

Its importance is shown in contexts where there are too many possible solutions to a problem to evaluate. Therefore, the number of acceptable solutions grows exponentially or factorially compared to the input size of the problem.
