About the conference

The traditional perception of operations as a horizontal function is rapidly changing and the field is now established as more of a vertical function that can lead to creation of sustainable competitive advantage. With the advancement in technology, medium of communication, network connectivity, and business dynamics, achieving and sustaining such competitive advantage has become increasingly vital as well as challenging. Managing resources is turning out to be of vital importance for organizations. With recent boom in data science and analytics applications, its ability to derive insights from data and turn those insights into tangible results has opened up far greater avenues to achieve operational excellence. These data analytics solutions, along with the entire gamut of latest technologies like IoT, Blockchain, Cloud computing and Social Media platforms have evolved the ecosystem of operational management. In this complex business environment mere good data and information is not sufficient to lead to extraordinary results. For this Knowledge discovery is strongly desired. This need of knowledge is popularizing the need of Decision Sciences in Operations Management.
                In the light of the aforesaid development, the 3rd International Conference on Operations Management (ICOM, 2020), the department of Operations and IT, IBS Hyderabad, IFHE University, India, we encourage the community of researchers from different universities of India and abroad to share common experiences and discussions.
