Farzad MahmoodiA study published in the November 2013 issue of the journal, titled “The Origins of Research and Patterns of Authorship in the International Journal of Production Research,” recognized the top 100 individual researchers over a 26-year time period (1985-2010) based on their number of publications in the journal. The study considered a total of 5,372 articles published by 7,103 unique authors from 1,202 different institutions located in 95 countries.

The International Journal of Production Research is a well-established and highly respected journal publishing, since 1961, world-class research on fundamental behavior of production resources, and the complex and cross-disciplinary problems of analysis and control that arise in combining these resources within the design of production systems. Supply chain management, industrial engineering & manufacturing, policy formulation and evaluation, and the contribution of technological innovation are among the major concerns of the journal.

Mahmoodi has been a faculty member in the Clarkson University School of Business since 1989. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including multiple Professor of the Year Awards (MBA Program- in 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2013), the Commendable Leadership Award, the Distinguished Teaching Award, the John W. Graham, Jr. Faculty Research Award, the Personal Computer Curriculum Award, School of Business Faculty Leadership Award, and Tau Delta Kappa Teacher’s Excellence Award. He serves on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Industrial Engineering and the International Journal of Integrated Supply Management.

Clarkson’s nationally ranked Global Supply Chain Management program has been ranked as one of the top-20 supply chain management programs in the nation by U.S News & World Report for 12 consecutive years.

Mahmoodi is also the director of Clarkson's Global Supply Chain Management Executive Seminar, which will be offered on campus August 5-8.

Over 450 participants from 71 globally recognized companies in 40 states and on four continents, including more than 30 Fortune 500 companies, have attended the seminar.

Attendees have included mid- and senior-level supply chain executives, managers, and consultants from leading organizations such as Accenture, Bank of America, Boeing, Corning, Dell, General Dynamics, GE, GM, Grainger, Honeywell, HP, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Northrup Grumman, Stanley Black & Decker, Toyota and Xerox.
