Abstract

This article gives a glimpse of OR in China, from the early years of OR in the ancient country upto the latest achievement in research and applications in various OR fields. Today an important discipline, OR education, research, and applications are developed fast since the founding of ORSC. The Chinese OR community is becoming ever more active in terms of teaching, academic research, industrial projects, and international exchanges. OR/MS-related applications in decision support are becoming increasingly visible in China.

Instead of a comprehensive description, we aim to provide a portrait of OR history in China and the current OR Society of China: an active, growing, open, and collaborative community in the IFORS family.
