Conference Scope and Theme

Interdisciplinary POM

As the global economy continues to be turbulent, production and operations managers in all organizations are facing more challenges - - shorter product life, more intensive competition, rapider response, increased product variety, and faster information flows. As a result, the interaction of operations with other functional areas such as R&D, engineering, marketing, finance, accounting, personnel, strategy, and information systems have become increasingly important. The theme of the meeting, Interdisciplinary POM, recognizes such a trend. The Fourth POMS-HK International Conference will provide a forum for practitioners and academics to share their research, experience, and insights on thematic areas as well as traditional POM problems.
