301 Planning and Scheduling I

326 (Convention Center )
Description:
Papers are invited in the general area of planning and scheduling of manufacturing processes. Planning and scheduling are key decision-making activities that vary in scope from the operational (day) and tactical (week) level, to the strategic (month/year) level. Despite the significant progress in this area in the last decade, many industrial problems still remain open. Areas of interest in this session include (but are not limited to): (i) novel modeling and optimization strategies for planning and scheduling of batch and continuous plants, (ii) integration of planning and scheduling in a unified framework, (iii) technologies for the analysis and visualization of planning and scheduling solutions in the context of enterprise-level decision making, (iv) novel incorporation of modeling uncertainty into planning and scheduling from plant operations and project management to the extended supply chain and (v) successful large-scale applications of new planning and scheduling methodologies. Application papers offering insights into the interaction between theory and practice in an industrial setting are particularly encouraged.
