INESC TEC is accepting applications to award 1 Research Grant - DM4Manufacturing-2 - CEGI.

Duration grant: from 2017-01-01 to 2017-12-31 (12) eventually renewable.

Location: INESC TEC, Porto, Portugal

Work area: Quantitative Methods for Decision Support in Real-Time Operations Management.

Project overview: Real-time decision-making in production systems requires the integration of the planning, scheduling, and control levels in order to achieve highly competitive operations. Optimal real-time operations have to deal with the data availability from the shop-floor, the uncertainty of the production system, and external issues such as demand variability. This requires dynamic approaches to keep coherency and optimize the decision-making throughout the various interdependent hierarchical planning levels.

Objectives: Develop and apply data mining techniques to extract and analyse data in real-time, translating it into useful information to the operations management, as well as optimization methods that use that information. There is also the possibility of framing this work in a PhD project.
