Dr. Suresh Sethi, Eugene McDermott Chair of operations management, said the study of inventory management has been around for more than 100 years. It involves knowing the inventory, considering the demand and determining how much to order to have the best outcome.
RICHARDSON, Texas (Sept. 19, 2005) – Three researchers in the School of Management at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) have been awarded a $200,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to study risk and decision making as they relate to uncertainties in inventory stocks, a major issue in product supply chains.
Principal researchers for the study are Dr. Alain Bensoussan; Dr. Metin Cakanyildirim and Dr. Suresh Sethi, Ashbel Smith Professor of Operations Management. The three professors are affiliated with two of the School of Management’s research centers, the Center for Intelligent Supply Networks (C4ISN) and the International Center for Decision and Risk Analysis (ICDRiA). Dr. Bensoussan is ICDRiA’s director, and Dr. Sethi is C4ISN’s director.
