Grace Hopper was my thesis advisor. She is taught some Linear Programming (supply vs demsnd). She would have loved to hear more about advanced supply chain models that are now available today. She most likely would have asked me to contribute blogs for EBNonline.

I forgot to mention that we did not use COBOL to solve Linear Programming problems that Grace Hopper gave us.  I believe she had a PhD in mathematical physics. In later years I was selected at a U. S. Defense agency to perform a mini-feasibility study on better ways of solving complex supply/demand problems. I was the only one in that group with a Master of Science degree in Engineering and was initiated into the Math Honorary Society for my outstanding achievement in math.
