Chair: Roman Kapuscinski

Roman Kapuscinski's research focuses on supply chain management and intersection of operational aspects with marketing and finance. This includes topics such as the value of information in coordinating the elements of supply chains, optimal design of production-inventory systems with capacity constraints, efficiency as a function of ownership within value chain analysis, and lead-time quotation.

Technology & Operations PhD Program

Social value is created when something is transformed into something else, of higher value to society.

The Technology & Operations department focuses on the design and management of value-creating transformation processes and their enabling technologies.

The Technology & Operations faculty lead their field in both research and teaching by leveraging a unique combination of Ross School programs. Established infrastructure, such as the Tauber Institute for Global Operations and the Ross School’s distinctive Multi-disciplinary Action Projects (MAP), can efficiently put faculty in touch with senior managers in a problem-solving context. This builds our faculty’s institutional knowledge, credibility in the classroom, and ability to identify problems of high business relevance.
