John Milne, the Neil '64 and Karen Bonke Assistant Professor in Engineering Management at the Clarkson University School of Business, will serve as the special editor of the Interfaces Journal (Jan/Feb 2013), which will contain the papers written by the 2012 Franz Edelman Award finalists.
The Franz Edelman Award is bestowed annually for achievement in operations research and the management sciences by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).
Interfaces is an INFORMS journal focusing on the practice of operations research and management science and the impact this practice has made on organizations throughout the world.
Operations research is the application of advanced analytical methods to improve decision making.
In conjunction with Milne’s role as special editor, he will serve on the 2012 Franz Edelman Award judging panel.
Before coming to Clarkson, Milne spent 26 years at IBM, rising to become one of the company’s most celebrated engineer-inventors by applying the mathematical techniques of operations research to complex problems in supply chain management.
Milne joined IBM after graduating from Cornell University with B.S. and M. Eng. degrees in operations research and industrial engineering. Subsequently, he earned a Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in decision sciences and engineering systems.
