My research efforts are devoted towards identifying practical Industrial Engineering problems and developing new interdisciplinary approaches for solving them. I started my academic studies (towards B.Sc. in IE&M) in 1982, at the age of 29, after 10 years of rich practical experience with tremendous responsibilities and exposure to leading R&D industries. This experience led me to the conclusion that most of anything, organizations lack operational and managerial methods and tools. Since then, my passion is to identify and structure various organizational operation problems and develop new approaches and tools for solving them.
