hokey minDr. Hokey Min, professor of operations and supply chain management and the James R. Good Chair in Global Supply Chain Strategy, recently got named Distinguished Research Professor by the BGSU Board of Trustees in honor of his contribution to the study of global logistics, supply chain technology, and healthcare supply chain management.

Dr. Min earned his Ph.D. degree in Management Sciences and Logistics from the Ohio State University and joined the Allen W. and Carol M. Schmidthorst College of Business in 2006. Prior to coming to BGSU, he was named the Distinguished University Scholar and Founding Director of the Logistics and Distribution Institute (LoDI), the UPS Center for World-wide Supply Chain Management and the Center for Supply Chain Workforce Development at the University of Louisville.

As a prolific scholar and highly cited author, Min has published more than 210 articles in various refereed journals. His research excellence has earned him many high awards and honors, including his recognition as the influential scholar on the list of Marquis Who’s Who in the World and Who’s Who in the America. Dr. Min’s recent study for the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology, “Benchmarking Aircraft Maintenance Performances Using Data Envelopment Analysis”, was considered one of the pioneering works that examined the common practice of cannibalization in aircraft repair parts for assessing aircraft maintenance efficiency. The findings of this research bear important implications for improving air safety and have the potential to save many lives.

Dr. Min was honored to have earned the title of Distinguished Research Professor.

“I view this honor as the encouragement of my lifelong efforts to put theory into practice and help the business community continue to grow and succeed. In particular, I would like to take the leadership role in revitalizing the somewhat depressed local economy and improving the quality of life for Ohio residents”, commented Dr. Min.

Ray Braun ’80, Dean of the Schmidthorst College of Business, congratulates Dr. Min for this achievement.

“We are very proud of Dr. Min’s impressive research record”, said Dean. “He is very deserving of the recognition as Distinguished Research Professor.”
