CV

Professor Chand teaches operations management. His current research interests include application of Operations Management principles in improving health-care delivery processes, supply chain models to match supply with demand with multiple orders, and investigating characteristics of batch sizes in presence of learning and forgetting.

His publishing credits include "Improving Patient Flow at an Outpatient Clinic: Study of Sources of Variability and Improvement Factors," Health-care Management Science (2009); "Batch sizing under learning and forgetting: Steady state characteristics for the constant demand case," Operations Research Letters (2008), and "Managing Inventory over a Short Season: Models with Two Procurement Opportunities," Manufacturing and Service Operations Management (2009).

Professor Chand has been with Krannert since 1979. He has taught a variety of OM courses at Krannert ranging from core courses for the MBA (both regular and executive) and undergraduate students to electives to undergraduate and MBA students on topics such as Factory Physics, Technology Management, Supply Chain Management, and Service Operations Management. He also teaches doctoral seminars.

He is currently senior editor for Production and Operations Management. He served as Associate Editor for Management Science (1986-2008). He was area editor for Production and Operations Management (1988-2003). He was also senior editor for Manufacturing and Service Operations Management (1999-2003). He was the general chair for POM 2005, the annual international conference of the Production and Operations Management Society.
