Our Optimisation Results at ICORES

International Conference on Operations Research and Enterprise Systems

Two CETIC researchers will attend the ICORES conference in Rome from 23 to 25 February. They will present results from applied research conducted in the field of logistics and transportation which rely on our expertise in optimization and complex algorithmics.

Renaud De Landtsheer and Gustavo Ospina will present two original contributions.

The first one is a result of the research project SimQRI to manage supply risks in supply chains. Our contribution (A Discrete Event Simulation Approach for Quantifying Risks in Manufacturing Processes) is based on the discrete event simulation engine of our OscaR library which has been improved both in terms of performance and instrumentation to very efficiently compute indicators on the fly (including risk).

The second contribution is the result of a longstanding collaboration with the Market-IP company about the efficient calculation of complex routes including maps with speed profiles and specific spatial constraints (e.g. turn restrictions). A toolkit has been developed and applied to the case of checking the response times of emergency vehicles in Wallonia.
