Progetto di ricerca
Integrated optimization and decision support systems for sustainable operations in manufacturing and services
Today more than ever, new engineering solutions are required to weaken the effects of the climate crisis, by readapting and improving industrial networks and business models. Laying in this framework, the proposed research project aims at merging sustainability principles with Operations Research methodologies and Engineering Economics tools to develop original solutions for local and global enterprises. The focus of the research project will be on complex decision-making and operational management problems occurring in real-world applications. Optimization methods based on mathematical models and heuristic algorithms will be implemented, looking for the best balance between economic and environmental objectives. The main goal of this project is to bring valuation and innovation within traditional decision support systems under a new sustainable perspective, and to take some steps forward in the scientific research area of Sustainable Operations.
