Namen, A. A., Bornstein, C. T. and Rosenhead, Jonathan (2009) Robustness analysis for sustainable community development. Journal of the Operational Research Society, 60 (5). pp. 587-597. ISSN 0160-5682
This paper presents some alternatives for the improvement of the conditions of life for poor communities based on self-management and sustainability in food production. A complex decision process is necessarily involved, and a soft OR approach, more specifically, robustness analysis, is used in its analysis. Some new features of the approach arise, not least from its community operational research context. A software called Robus has been developed which helps in the application of the methodology.
