Inside IIE Journals 

This month we highlight a pair of articles related to manufacturing and supply chain planning. The first article develops an effective approach for sequencing jobs on a closed-loop paint line where cyclical part geometry and consecutive unit color changes initiate setups. The second article examines the impact of information differences between retailers and suppliers when setting supply contracts and asks the question whether more accurate demand information is always better. These articles will appear in the August 2015 issue of IIE Transactions (Volume 47, No. 8).
