The Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) created the Sushil K. Gupta POMS Distinguished Service Award at its annual meeting to recognize contributions made by those members who substantially contributed to the growth of the Society. The award was named after Dr. Sushil K. Gupta to honor him for his dedicated services to POMS.
At most, two awards may be given in any year. The winner(s) will be announced at the awards luncheon of the Annual POMS Conference. Recipient(s) will receive a plaque, along with a $2,000 honorarium and a lifetime POMS membership.
