Young H. Chun


My research interest is in probabilistic modeling of managerial decision problems in operations, finance, and marketing. Specifically, I have published many papers in sequential decision analysis, inspection plans for complex system and product, statistical quality control, product warranty analysis, and customer response modeling.
