Inside IISE Journals

This month we highlight two articles from IISE Transactions. The first addresses the food insecurity issues affected by the inequitable and ineffective distribution of available food, which leads to waste in some places and shortages in others. The solution provides policies that food banks can use to improve their operations, benefitting the food-insecure people that they serve. The second article studies how to design a good cruise ship itinerary to balance customers' travel experience and companies' operational costs. The authors formulized the problem with utility functions, provided the optimal solutions, and conducted case studies and implementations with Royal Caribbean International. These articles will appear in the June 2017 issue of  IISE Transactions (Volume 49, No. 6).
