Abstract

Andrew (Andy) Vazsonyi helped shape the post-World War II (WWII) emerging operations research (OR) profession by leading the way for theoreticians and practitioners to enhance the practice of quantitative and qualitative problem-solving in business and industrial settings. A mathematician by inclination and education, Andy’s career highlights include his now famous and continually rediscovered solution of a problem in location theory that he solved when he was 16 years old, and the finding of his true professional life when he encountered the real-world problems of business and industry that led him to the decision and information sciences. During his early engineer phase, he also contributed to the fields of aerodynamics and control systems.
