Theme Service Design and Planning


The Service Design and Planning theme focuses on operation management, at different decision levels (strategic, tactical, operational, real-time), in the context of services such as healthcare services or transportation.

The theme covers very important societal issues (health, mobility, the environmental impact of transport) and addresses these issues from a variety of perspectives. In transportation, for example, the members of the axis are interested in transportation modes with very different characteristics (road, rail, maritime, air) and problems as diverse as network design, timetabling or multimodal best itinerary optimizations. In healthcare, the subjects of study are also numerous, concerning both the internal logistics of the hospitals and everything related to homecare.

Scientific contributions can take many forms, but mainly concern modeling, structural analysis of problems and the development of efficient solution methods.
