Graves (then Prof. of Mathematics and Computers in the School of Business, University of Chicago), and Juan-Claudio Lopez (Professor in Escuela de Administracion, Universidad Catolica, Santiago de Chile).

Dr. Thorelli (then at the University of Chicago) and Graves were in the development of firstling simulation INTOP, which was adopted by over 160 institutions world-wide in the 1963-1995 period.
