Abstract

Many studies in operations management started to explicitly model customer behavior. However, it is typically assumed that customers are fully rational decision-makers and maximize their utility perfectly. Recently, modeling customer bounded rationality has been gaining increasing attention and interest. This paper summarizes various approaches of modeling customer bounded rationality, surveys how they are applied to relevant operations management settings, and presents the new insights obtained. We also suggest future research opportunities in this important area.
