The College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) recognized John J. Bartholdi III, Manhattan Associates Chair of Supply Chain Management and research director, the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute, and Steven Hackman, associate professor, as first place winners of the 2010 Outstanding Material Handling & Facility Logistics Research Paper Award for the paper they co-authored, titled Allocating space in a forward pick area of a distribution center for small parts.

CICMHE announced the winners at the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) annual meeting on October 5, 2010. MHIA and CICMHE created the award to encourage the development of, and recognize excellence in, material handling-related research. The 2010 award is based on papers published during the 2008 and 2009 calendar years.  Bartholdi and Hackman’s paper was published in IIE Transactions, Vol. 40 (2008).

 The competition is open to any active researchers and educators in the field of material handling and facility logistics from engineering, business, and other allied schools or colleges.  MHIA and CICMHE are interested in groundbreaking papers in a broad sense on material handling in the fields of manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, supply chain, and logistics.  A mix of academic and industry judges evaluate the contributions based on educational value, innovation in research methodology, and contribution to the material handling industry.
