Group Honors Operations Management Researcher
UT Dallas News Center
A society for operations management professionals has conferred top honors on Kathryn E. Stecke, lauding the School of Management professor for a long list of contributions to the field.
 
Stecke was chosen to be a fellow of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), one of only 11 chosen this year out of the society’s 10,000 members.
 
Dr. Stecke was cited for contributions to research on flexible manufacturing and supply chains, and for creating opportunities for others in her field to disseminate their research in conferences and journals.

Operations Management Prof Honored by Peers
UT Dallas News Center
Dr. Kathryn E. Stecke, Ashbel Smith Professor of Operations Management at the UT Dallas School of Management, has been chosen to receive the Kimball Medal from the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).
 
INFORMS awards the Kimball Medal each year to recognize distinguished service to both the organization and the profession of operations research and the management sciences. 
 
Long an active member of INFORMS, Stecke has chaired national and international meetings for the organization.  She served two terms on the INFORMS Board of Directors, first from 1999 to 2001 and again from 2003 to 2005 when she was vice president of INFORMS’ sections and societies. INFORMS has also recognized her research, naming her paper, “Formulation and Solution of Nonlinear Integer Production Planning Problems for Flexible Manufacturing Systems,” as “one of the 50 most influential papers” published in the society’s journal Management Science during the last half century.
