Spanish term or phrase: Investigación Operativa
What is the proper translation of "investigación operativa I?" It comes from a diploma from the universidad catolica de la plata in Argentina. It can't mean "operational investigation I" - can it?
Thanks a lot,

Operative Investigation I
Explanation:
Hi John,

it is the name of one of the subjects done by the man/woman who got the degree.

Look at this University Doctoral Program:

MEIP'S CURRICULUM VITAE -

... Courses of Third Cycle (Doctoral Program 130-A in Statistics
and Operative Investigation):

www.unanleon.edu.ni/~ibarra/c-v-i.html

Looks quite clear :)

Hope it helps :)

operational investigation


Explanation:
From first link:

¿Qué es la Investigación Operativa?

La investigación operativa (IO) es una metodología que proporciona las bases empíricas para la toma de decisiones, además de ayudar a mejorar la entrega de servicios. Usada con éxito en distintas disciplinas sociales, fue en 1974, gracias al apoyo de la Agencia para el Desarrollo Internacional de los Estados Unidos (USAID), que se iniciaron los programas de IO en los países en vías de desarrollo. A partir de entonces se han conducido un gran número de estudios sobre planificación familiar y salud reproductiva.

La IO utiliza técnicas sistemáticas de investigación para diagnosticar y solucionar problemas en la entrega de servicios de planificación familiar, enfocándose exclusivamente en los factores que los administradores de programas pueden controlar: la capacitación de los prestadores de servicios, el mejoramiento de la calidad y el acceso a los servicios y el sostenimiento financiero de los programas.

It seems to be a direct calque from English so you were right (see second link)
