Alliance University 360 degree vertual tour



Dr. Amit Kumar Jain

Assistant Professor & Assistant Dean - Research

Alliance School of Business

Dr Amit Kumar Jain is an Assistant Professor in Industrial Asset and Operations Management at the Alliance School of Business. Before this, largely he worked at the University of Cambridge, UK, for his Postdoctoral Research in Industrial Asset Management. He received a PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology Indore for his contributions to Prognostics. He holds a master’s degree in Maintenance Engineering from NIT Bhopal and a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is presently researching data-centric and risk-informed asset management. He focuses on how asset information and artificial intelligence can considerably improve asset performance. Through research and consulting projects, he actively engages with the industry viz. British Telecommunications, UK. His primary research interests are operations research, mechanisms for explaining decisions, reliability, Industry 4.0 for SMEs, business intelligence and data analytics. Most of his research contributions in these areas are developing novel mathematical/analytical models capturing real-life situations to draw meaningful managerial insights.

Dr Jain has over 20 papers published in reputed academic journals and conferences, besides two books. Many of these papers appeared in leading industrial and operations management journals such as Reliability Engineering and Systems Safety, IEEE Transactions on Reliability, and the Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing.
