The research of the team focuses on the development of planning models for the different areas of production, logistics, and supply chain management with a special emphasis on tactical and operational planning using quantitative models. The current trend towards vertically and/or horizontally integrated planning approaches (i.e., the integration of several planning levels as well as the integration of different planning tasks, for example, production and distribution planning) necessitates the development of efficient and robust solution procedures. The different research topics are:
  •  Lot-sizing and scheduling
  •  Supply Chain Operations Planning (SCOP)
  •  Planning for perishable goods
  •  Robust planning methods considering uncertainty (simulation-based optimization)
  •  Development of metaheuristics and hybrid methods (integration of exact solution algorithms and metaheuristics) for solving optimization problems
