Past Awards

INFORMS Prize: Winner(s)

Awarded to Hewlett-Packard for its extensive use of Operations Research and Management Science technologies across its value chain. Through partnership between Hewlett-Packard's Strategic Planning and Modeling group and the business divisions, Hewlett-Packard has diffused modeling innovations throughout the entire organization. These rigorous modeling and analytical methods have saved Hewlett-Packard and its supply chain partners hundreds of millions of dollars while increasing their competitive advantage. Beyond the business achievements, Hewlett-Packard has shared its modeling thought leadership and application success stories through articles and case studies read extensively within the INFORMS community. We salute Hewlett-Packard, both for its success and for its role as thought-leading corporate citizenship.

The award was presented by Eric Johnson, Committee Chair and Michael Trick, 2002 INFORMS President in November 2002.
