research interests will range from focused projects such as material selection in product design and green manufacturing processes to general activities such as waste reduction/elimination in manufacturing (lean manufacturing), and energy conservation. as the world becomes more complex and more dependent on new technology, mathematics applied to business problems is likely to play an increasingly important role in decision-making in industry. there are now many or departments in industry, government, and academia throughout the world.

numerous companies in industry require operations research professionals to apply mathematical techniques to a wide range of challenging questions. or topics requiring mathematical analysis are inventory control (when to reorder material to avoid shortages under demand uncertainty), manufacturing operations (what size of production run will minimize sum of inventory and production setup costs), location planning (where to locate the hub to serve markets with minimal travel distances), and facility layout (how to design airport terminals to minimize walking distances, maximize number of gates, allow for future expansion, and conform to government regulations). projects will be supported and assigned to a team that includes industry and university personnel.
