IMG_2369Hi, I’m Bob Rose. I have been successfully using operations research to solve business problems for many years. I have interacted with senior executives, led project teams and personally developed and implemented systems in the areas of inventory control, scheduling, forward buying analysis, financial modeling, customer segmentation, and forecasting. I have served as operations research project manager at Pathmark, a principle member of the Merrill Lynch Management Science Group, and a consulting partner at Advanced Technology Decisions, where I provided consulting services to AT&T and Nabisco.

I have a BS degree in Agricultural Economics from Rutgers, and a MS degree in Management Science from Stevens Institute of Technology.

I am currently the Past Chair of the New Jersey Chapter of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).

I have formed a company, Optimal Decisions LLC, to develop ‘OR’ based decision support tools. Currently I am developing solutions in the areas of employee scheduling and forward buying optimization. If you would like to know more, you can check out my website http://www.optimaldecisionsllc.com.
