Theme Modeling and Optimization of Manufacturing Systems


The theme Modeling and Optimization of Manufacturing Systems focuses on the evaluation and optimization of industrial organizations and processes in the context of goods manufacturing or related services. It covers different time horizons (from the design of the systems to the fine-grained scheduling of their operations) and spatial horizons (from the supply chain to the workshop or the production line).

The contributions of the theme rely on strong skills in combinatorial optimization, especially around several NP-difficult reference problems (facility layout design, line balancing, lot sizing, job shop scheduling), and in discrete event simulation.

The research conducted is mainly related to the development of optimization methods able to deal effectively with industrial problems but can also integrate the use of conceptual models to better understand the impact of certain transformations on industrial organizations (servicization, mass customization. ..).
