ABSTRACT
The article asserts that scientific research has become the practical application of the principal of causation on observation, analysis, experiment, and the development of hypotheses, theories, and models. The article traces the history of the search for causal relationships and discusses various aspects of causation, such as causation as a scientific hypothesis, in the research of natural and social phenomena, and in human activities. The author notes the importance of observation in the search for causation in order to isolate and synthesize the phenomena. The author argues that the discipline of operations research can help in interpreting the results of these observations into quantitative specifications, clarifying the nature and structure of the scientific method in problem solving.
