Manufacturing and Production Management

The Manufacturing and Production Management Track focuses on contemporary research topics in production and manufacturing. The track welcomes a broad range or research methods (e.g., analytical, empirical, theory development) that examine issues in production and manufacturing. Key areas of interest within this track include (but are not limited to):

  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Cyber Physical Systems
  • Technology Management
  • Sustainable Manufacturing
  • Capacity Management
  • Aggregate Planning
  • Inventory Management in Manufacturing Operations
  • Lean/Six Sigma Process Management

We also encourage research topics that study the interface of manufacturing and production management with other areas such as supply chain management, finance, information systems, accounting, entrepreneurship, global business, organization behavior and human resource management.
