Decision-Making Biases in Operations: An Investigation of the Alignment between Decision Makers’ Preferences and Operational Goals

Project: Research project

Project Details


This research project aims to understand how decision makers’ preferences for particular operational goals (e.g., optimize profit, optimize service level, meet a profit target, etc.) and their degree of alignment with given operational metrics (i.e., goals) affects performance in a traditional supply chain management area: inventory management (e.g., Newsvendor problem, Beer Game). Notwithstanding the identification of decision-making biases in this fundamental area, we still lack a clear understanding of the underlying causes of these biases.
