Abstract: The present paper discusses key aspects of managerial human factors in research, specifically when implementing decision support systems in the context of Humanitarian Logistics. It is framed as a follow-up of an Operations Research-based project developing a decision support framework for relief distribution in the event of a catastrophic blackout. Specifically, the main lessons learned from this project are explored to understand the role that experts and decision makers play when conducting research in the fast-growing area of Humanitarian Logistics.
