BT3: Modeling of Production and Logistic Systems

The official Call for Papers for this session is available here: Call for Papers BT3


Since renewable materials are used both in the manufacturing and in the process industry, the production of renewable resources has been increased significantly in recent years. Adapting the planning and design of production and logistics systems to the characteristics of renewable materials is a difficult and complex task. Variations in the quantity and quality of the materials lead to uncertainties and imprecision, which have to be considered in the modeling and optimization. Additionally, varying preferences of the participating companies within the supply chain network require a multi-criteria analysis to support decision-making processes.

Within this context the track is dedicated to research on theoretical analysis and applications concerning production and logistics systems with renewable resources. The track is a forum for presenting results of the international research and development work dealing with multi-criteria decision making, the modeling and optimization of logistic networks as well as the handling of uncertainties in production induced by the utilization of renewable resources.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
