What is your level of experience with Operations Research, Management Science, or Analytics?

My first three years at USPS were focused on Analytics within the four walls of the plant: improving equipment and process performance, streamlining software systems and data reporting, data visualization, etc. In the last year, the fun really began as I became responsible for the improvement and performance of the demand forecasting and SAS\OR based linear program used to plan our air transportation network. I was able to drastically reduce the model run time while adding constraints to meet new contractual requirements. Also, I was able to make the program straightforward enough (and excel based) so that a non-SAS employee could run this linear program.

What do you hope to get out of this group?

I'd just like to meet other people in the area doing OR type work, so I can see what else is going I the industry. The applications for OR are so vast, and I always enjoy hearing new ones.

Are you an INFORMS or WINFORMS member? (Not required, but we hope you join if the events are valuable to you!)

Not yet. This would be my first meeting.


Been in DC about 5 years with USPS in Engineering and Network Analytics offices, at University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana before that for Enterprise Systems Engineering. Talk anything Chicago sports, and you'll have my attention.
