Efficient and effective Operations/Supply Chain Management forms the key functional area in defining an organization's success in today's competitive global environment. This Symposium Proceedings focuses on the role of Analytics in Operations /Supply Chain Management, particularly in the context of multi criteria decision making. It highlights emerging concepts and potential applications in descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics fields. The 46 articles presented in the proceedings are from over 100 contributors from academics and industry. These 46 articles are classified into 6 groups based on the main theme of the respective studies. These groups are: (1) Analytics for Operations Strategy; (2) Analytics for Performance Analysis; (3) Analytics for Resource Planning/Allocation; (4) Analytics for Sequencing and Scheduling; (5) Analytics for Product/Process Management; and (6) Supply Chain Analytics.
Part I - Analytics for Operations StrategyPart II - Analytics for Performance EvaluationPart III - Analytics for Resource Planning/AllocationPart IV - Analytics for Sequencing and SchedulingPart V - Analytics in Product/Process ManagementPart VI - Supply Chain Analytics.
