Abstract

Advances in theory and methods, including behavioral operations, dynamic modeling, experimental methods, and field studies provide new insights into challenging operational contexts. Yet the world of operations continues to change rapidly, creating new and difficult challenges for scholars. Increasingly, operations management requires theory, models and empirical methods to address the cross-functional, interdisciplinary character of modern operational systems and the complex nonlinear dynamics these systems generate.

Keywords: system dynamics, operations management, process theory
