Steven Nahmias is an author and professor of operations management at Santa Clara University. He is best known for his contributions to inventory theory, and, in particular, perishable inventory theory. He is also the author of Production and Operations Analysis, a preeminent text in the field.[1] He is currently a Honorary Fellow of INFORMS and MSOM.[2]


Life and career[edit]

Nahmias received his B.A. from Queens College in pre-engineering with emphasis in mathematics and physics and a B.S. from Columbia University in Industrial Engineering (operations research option) both in 1968. He then earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Operations Research from Northwestern University in 1971 and 1972 respectively. In 1972 he joined the Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Pittsburgh where he remained until 1978. During the academic year 1978–1979 he taught in the Operations Research Department at Stanford University, and since 1979 has been part of the Operations Management and Information Systems Department at Santa Clara University.[3]

Nahmias is best known for his ground-breaking work on modeling the management of fixed life perishableinventories. Since 1972 he has published 18 publications on this problem. Extensions of the basic model include inclusion of a fixed charge, random lifetimes, one-for-one policies, and many others. He also has 19 additional publications on other inventory problems, and an additional 10 publications on problems in stochastic modeling of a variety of problems including contributions to fuzzy set theory, radioactive pharmaceuticals management, modeling the spread of AIDS, and others.

Nahmias is the author of Production and Operations Analysis. The first edition was published in 1989 by Richard D. Irwin. Subsequently, Richard D. Irwin was subsequently acquired by McGraw-Hill, who published editions three through six. During that time, the book was translated into Hebrew, Chinese and Spanish. The current edition (seventh) is co-authored with Tava Olsen of the University of Auckland and is published by Waveland Press. The text has been used at hundreds of universities throughout the world, and is the de facto standard among quantitativeoperations management texts.He is also the author of the book Perishable Inventory Systems published by Springer in 2011.[4]

Awards and honors[edit]

  • Elected Fellow of Manufacturing & Service Operations Management Society (2011)
  • Elected Fellow of INFORMS Society (2014)

Personal life[edit]

In addition to his academic work, Nahmias is an accomplished jazz trumpeter. He performs regularly with several bands in the Bay Area.[5]
