Decision makers are continuously faced with the challenge of optimising production planning and scheduling problems to reduce costs under uncertainty. Our partnership, which includes 2 universities, was awarded £1.54M (EP/M028240/1 & EP/M027856/1). Imperial Department of Computing was awarded £423k.
Richard Oberdieck gave us a great start as the first Research Assistant who contributed to this project. As a part of his contribution, Richard developed a robust optimization-based strategy for explicit model predictive control. His work has been presented in several conference venues and a full-length paper is under review.
Now, Dr Dimitrios Letsios is taking the project in some exciting new directions.
