Why Research

For MPR, research is an essential component in our pursuit of realizing our vision, as it plays a critical role in developing innovative products, services, and solutions.  Through research, we discover new technologies, software, and algorithms that transform the way our clients operate and conduct their business.  It also helps us identify better ways of problem-solving, extending beyond the confines of an organization to facilitate collaboration with partners.  Without this critical component, we would fall behind in meeting the ever-changing demands of society and hinder the growth and evolution of our clients’ businesses. Therefore, research is a cornerstone of our commitment to delivering excellence and driving progress.

Mr. Aaron’s Chicago-based company, has developed web-based project management tools using data science and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. The software product offering began in 2008 when Mr. Aaron spearheaded an internal research and development effort called the “PRIMMS project”. The results of this effort led to the commercialization of the product (today known as “Iuvo”), as well as the discovery of several path breaking insights to how a next generation of AI tools can and will reduce PM risk on complex projects.

In his adjunct role at Elmhurst College Mr. Aaron taught in three master’s degree programs: project management, data science and supply chain management.

Bill Lattyak Statistical consultant at MPR

Bill Lattyak

Statistical consultant

Bill Lattyak is a seasoned statistician / data scientist with 30+ years’ experience and who has collaborated with world class statisticians, econometricians, and computer science professionals. He is co-developer of a major statistical software program (SCA Statistical System), designed predictive modeling and analysis systems for Fortune 500 companies, and consulted on a wide-variety of projects; both domestic and international. Besides being a statistician / data scientist by trade, Bill has a mathematical programming background with proficiency in several programming languages and he is highly proficient in database design and the integration of disparate systems.
Bill prides himself in having a common sense approach to problem-solving. Whereas many of the techniques he may use in problem solving can be complex or highly technical, he strives to deliver simplified solutions that are easily operationalized. By doing so, it avoids execution issues which are usually the first reason for a failed project.
Among the many challenging -yet highly successful – projects completed by Mr. Lattyak is a comprehensive forecasting system that was custom designed for a multi-brand international restaurant chain with 1000’s of corporate-owned restaurants. The forecasting system manages all data sources used by the predictive models at the individual restaurant level while integrating with cloud-based labor scheduling, product prep, and inventory management components. Bill also designed and spearheaded the development of a real-time scalable cloud-based analytic and reporting platform for a major on-line casino. In addition to database design and integration skills, Bill has expert knowledge of

  • Machine Learning applied to conversion propensity, classification, and optimization
  • Survival analysis to study attrition/churn and customer life-time-value
  • Path analysis to study the sequence and probability of events leading to an outcome (e.g., customer journey, buy-flow analysis, attribution)
  • Survey analysis and reporting related to voice of customer (VOC)
  • Cluster analysis and segmentation
  • Forecasting and advanced time series analysis (seasonal patterning, event impact, causality, outlier detection, cross channel dependencies)
  • Traditional statistical methods (regression, ANOVA, LP, Probability & distribution, Nonparametric, etc.)

Over the years, Bill has also provided consulting services to the healthcare industry and authored more than a dozen peer-reviewed research papers from hospital policy assessment to nonlinear relationships between hospital antibiotic usage levels and antimicrobial resistance of dangerous pathogens. He has managed and implemented survey analysis of customers and practitioners for health insurance carriers, and providers of healthcare services across North America. Through survey analysis, areas of strength and weakness were quantified across locations as well as strength and weakness compared with competitors.
