Abstract: These days Internet of Things (IoT) increased an extraordinary consideration structure specialist, since it turns into a significant innovation that guarantees a shrewd individual life, by permitting an interchanges between objects, machines and each thing together with people groups. IoT speaks to a framework which comprises a things in reality, and sensors joined to or consolidated to thesethings, associated with the Internet through wired and remote system structure.In this paper I have represented the various application of the operation research in the field of IoT

Keywords: Operations Research,Internet of Things

  1. Introduction

    Operations research (OR) is an analytical procedureto solve problem and decision-making which is used by the management of organizations. In operations research, problems are divided intodifferent components and then by using mathematical analysis ,solution of each component is found out .In similar way it works in the field of IoT.Without using the quantitative and qualitative techniques of Operation Research,IoT cannot be completed.Hence OR(operation research ) plays a vital role in the field of IoT(internet of things)

  2. What is iot

    People today have made significant progress in front of the early-man ages when they needed to physically take part in the consummation of every one of their needs and necessities. Today life has gotten less complex, quicker just as more helpful than it at any point was. Have you at any point figured what it resembles to have allthe gadgets, individuals, protests just as living and non-living elements to be associated over a typical system?

    The Internet of Things known as IoT, is a method for associating all the gadgets and articles around us into a common cloud network. Through the appearance of this innovation, we will have the option to impart just as send/get information over this system without the requirement for any human mediation. You will be stunned to realize that while this mechanical change is by all accounts to some degree unimaginable at the present time; the execution of IoT towards making a savvy world has just been set into movement. The development of Internet ofThingstechnology is expanding so quickly that

    a significant number of the IT technology speculators have begun putting resources into IoT stocks market.


In this section ,I am discussing the various tools and technologies of operation research which are necessaryto meet the required challenges of IoT

Game Theory :

Game theory is used to choose the best strategy out of the available strategies to maximize the winning.this approach is used in multi tasking like data distribution to optimize it. Now we are using LTE, 5G ,the optimization of these data distribution is investigated through game theory.

Math Programming :

In operation research we find optimal solution of linear, nonlinear, integer programming, dynamic programming. This programming is used as networking in IoT.By using this technology we can optimize (minimize/maximize)the use of networking.

Graph Theory:

Graph theory is a pictorial representation of vertices and edges in which vertices are connected with each other through the edge(edges).Which is similar as networking. In IoTwe use three types of networks known as topological networks, data-functional networks, and domio-functional networks.Graph theory is used to combine this networks .it is also used in cell phone networking, computer networking, sensor networking.

CPM(Critical Path Method) :

Critical path is used to visualize the project in the graphical form. It defines the tasks which are most important.it also reduce the time of the project and identify the critical activities in which more attention is required. In the similar way it is used in the networking of IoT. It helps the signal to follow those paths in whichless time is consumed. Networking of IoT is tottaly followed the management as CPM.

Agent based Modelling :

In IoT lots of messages ,emails,signals move at the same time ,which creates traffic. To Reduce the traffic load agent based modeling is used which works as smart objent interaction.


The Iot has become an interesting cocept with sensory hardware, smart phones, communication protocols along with social and cyber networks .It also include lots of complexities whose range is from mechanisim, information management, communication, presentation and interaction with in the IoT. No doubt there are lots of existing model which are capable to design and solve problems related to IoT.

But as the use of it increasing day by day lot of research work is required., This paper presents a synthetic

reaction inspired computational model utilizing the ideas

of graphs and game, which endeavors to address the

complexities related with the perception, demonstrating, communication, investigation and deliberation of data in the IoT.
