Operational Research

You can always be more efficient

Operational Research is all about using analysis to improve decision making. Dr Angela Moore uses mathematical modeling, statistical analysis, optimisation, sequencing and scheduling techniques to create simple heuristics you can employ to run your operation more efficiently.

Security Operation

 

number 10 smallThe today’s latest attack at Westminster demonstrates the importance of having a dynamic security operation. While most organisations will not have to deal with a security incident of this magnitude, the same principles apply.

So when you are designing or managing a security team/department you need to consider the workload:

What will your workload be on a day to day level?

If an incident does occur how many people will you need to deal with it?

What skills will you need on a day to day basis?

Will the workload change throughout the day?

Will weekends be different to week days?

Once you know the skills and the number of people you will need across the day, week and year, you can begin to set up the operation.

You can estimate the number of people you will require to run the operation, and their skills. You can design a shift pattern that will meet the needs of the operation and the security team. You need to consider, how night working, weekend working, fatigue and work/life balance will be dealt with on shift.

Normally you would plan to be able to cope with two major incidents at a time as a minimum operational level. Typical major incidents would include: fire, attack, car accident, alarms, lockdowns, visiting dignities, events, terrorist alert, gas leaks, electrical or mechanical failures.

When an invent happens, you need to be able to help the police, fire brigade and ambulance service. You may need to evacuate premises, help with injuries, man the control room, and normal operations.

We have helped many companies set up their security operations based on the above principles.
