Abstract

[A management science practitioner recounts his 25 years of providing the corporate world with logistics optimization software and consulting. Clients included a substantial portion of the world’s largest businesses as well as the US Department of Defense and General Services Administration. Significant contributions were made to the profitability and return on assets of these client organizations. At the same time the members of the author’s company contributed to the ongoing development of optimization technology and large-scale data management to support logistics modeling. These efforts led to the publication of dozens of articles in first-rate logistics and management science journals as well as the election of two of the company’s principals to the National Academy of Engineering.]
