Inventory Issuing Rules and Food Waste Management, Dr. Akkas

March 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Dear UMass INFORMS community,

We are thrilled to announce the first talk of our Spring 2023 Speaker Series titled “Inventory Issuing Rules and Food Waste Management,” organized by the UMass Amherst Student Chapter of INFORMS and its Faculty Advisor, Professor Anna Nagurney.

Dr. Arzum Akkas, assistant professor at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, will give the talk. Dr. Akkas will present findings from two research papers on managing perishable inventory at distribution centers. Her research provides guidance for managers to make inventory issuing decisions that consider the downstream supply chain’s food waste impact.

The event will be held on Friday, March 31, from 11 am to 12:15 pm at Isenberg School Of Management N145. We welcome you to attend this in-person event!

Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
