INVITED Steven E. Butt, Ph.D., Associate Professor,
SPEAKER: Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering,
TITLE: Experiences in Operations Research
Operations Research (OR) has enhanced organizations and experiences all around us, from better scheduling of transportation and workforces, to the design of waiting lines at theme parks. This presentation will discuss several interesting applications of OR from recent work on international, national and local projects. Projects include work with government agencies, airlines, lifeboat designers, hospitals, recruiters, furniture designers, and more. Hopefully, this presentation will peak the interest of those individuals that like to solve problems using mathematics, statistics, and computers to consider an exciting career in OR.
