Industrial Applications of Analytics/OR at INFORMS 2013

I will be presenting three practice talks around the theme of 'industrial applications of analytics and OR' at the INFORMS annual conference, 2013. Each of them involve some type of optimization; each one is a different context - energy, fashion retail, e-commerce; each one a different setting (product, service, decision support tool) having varying client objectives and requirements.

3 - The core decision optimization problem turned out to be a discrete nonlinear formulation, and in each case, solved with the help of CPLEX after reformulations and/or decomposition.

2 - of the more challenging decision problems will be analyzed using results on real client data.

1 - of these solutions, apparently, was turned into a commercial product a while ago.

0 - number of theorems proved. Left to the journal paper and smarter co-authors.
