Symposium on Data-Driven Decision Making
Design, Optimization, and Application

Thursday, May 2, 2019

This symposium will focus on data-driven decision making and other new developments in operations management. Leading scholars and practitioners will share their cutting-edge research and show how quantitative and data-driven management can have a major impact on business.

With the emergence of new business models and technologies in the past few years, practitioners have integrated data-driven methods into their business management, and researchers have applied data science to advance quantitative modeling and optimization methodologies. The importance of data science, analytics, and quantitative management has been recognized, and their impact has been well documented. This workshop will provide a forum in which knowledgeable, experienced thought leaders and practitioners can describe how they develop new methodology to solve challenging business problems, and how quantitative methods are used to improve efficiency and effectiveness in decision making.
