      Key extracts from six Edelman prize videos are available. Each of these videos was made during the annual competition, sponsored by INFORMS (the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences), for the best worldwide application of management science methods to business problems. The contest involves more than $15,000 in prizes but much more than that value in prestige for the winner.

      techtvAny Edelman prize finalist has had his or her work carefully reviewed by a panel of judges from the INFORMS College on the Practice of Management Science (CPMS, which administers the award), an independent verifier, and several outside technical referees.

      The videos are live and are part of a serious and heated competition. The presentation tries to convince a panel of judges that this work represents leading edge management science methods that have provided verifiable economic value to the organization.

      There are typically 5–7 finalists each year, and since the videotaping began in 1983, these six tapes remain the only marketing applications that have made it to the finals.

      Fortunately, they represent good examples of a number of the key ideas we develop in the text and software. (Viewers here might also be interested in similar videos associated with the Lilien ISMS-MSI Practice Prize)

      principlesbookcover-1Welcome to Marketing Engineering. Several forces are transforming the structure and content of the marketing profession. Marketers are seeing increasingly faster changes in the marketplace and are barraged with an ever increasing amount of information. While many view traditional marketing as art and some view it as science, the new marketing increasingly looks like engineering. These textbooks, combined with a comprehensive collection of leading-edge software models provides the student with the know-how and tools to collect the right information and perform analysis to make better marketing plans, better product designs, and better decisions.

      The purpose in writing these books is to help educate and train a new generation of marketing managers. Our goal is to train marketing engineers to translate concepts into context-specific operational decisions and actions using analytical, quantitative, and computer modeling techniques. We link theory to practice and practice to theory.

      mexlsoftwareMarketing Engineering is combination of textbooks, software, and business cases developed and written by Professors Gary L. Lilien, Arvind Rangaswamy, and Arnaud De Bruyn. The textbooks, software, and cases are intended to be used in conjunction with one another to provide theory (textbook), computer modeling techniques (software), and context-specific operations decisions and action (business cases).

      I think you've put together a great product for teaching marketing. My students really feel like they're learning a lot from the software and applications in the New Products module of Marketing Engineering. I'll definitely be using it again when I teach two sections of the course next year.... Based on my interactions with students over the years, I know that there is a big need for user-friendly software that enables firms to apply all of these models.
