PROS Scientist to Present Revenue Management Research at POMS 2017 Conference
HOUSTON, May 5, 2017 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a cloud software company powering the shift to modern commerce, today announced that Ravi Kumar, Ph.D., a member of the company’s Science and Research team, will deliver a revenue management research presentation at the 28th Annual Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) Conference. Scheduled for May 5-8 in Seattle, the event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.
Kumar’s presentation – A Dynamic Pricing Model with Capacity Sharing for Airline Revenue Management – was developed in collaboration with Darius Walczak, Ph.D., and Ang Li, Ph.D. Kumar will consider revenue management settings for airlines where limited business compartment capacity can be shared with the economy class for each flight. The model jointly controls real-time prices for business and economy compartments, based on the bookings in each. The PROS Science & Research team developed algorithms for dynamic pricing to address challenges that are computationally efficient and lead to improved profitability for airlines.
