Industrial Engineering and Numerical Methods

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Our group develops approaches, formulations and solutions to specific industrial engineering problems using a quantitative point of view. We solve production and logistics problems such as planning and production scheduling, facility location, inventory, vehicle routing, territorial design, forest management and port logistics.

The approach is quantitative, it provides formulation and solution to problems by designing algorithms that allow us to obtain both exact and approximate solutions.
