Dr. Wilbur B. Payne Award


 

Dr. Wilbur B. Payne was a pioneer in Army Operations Research and the preeminent leader in the field for three decades. Throughout his career, Dr. Payne was an enthusiastic advocate for applying methods of science to practical defense decision making, enforcing the highest standards of professionalism, and nurturing and mentoring operations research analysts.

In 1990, the Department of the Army Systems Analysis Award became the Dr. Wilbur B. Payne Memorial Award for Excellence in Analysis in order to honor the memory and contributions of Dr. Payne to the Operations Research field.
